Had the chance to work a workhorse of an acoustic recently. The Gibson Songwriter Deluxe. The guitar took a fall and cracked the lower edge and knocked the binding loose as well. The multiple layers of the binding actually separated as well. Years of playing left the frets looking like the Grand Canyon. The pictures show the repairs of before and after. Look at the captions for explanation. I would write more, but you guitar people are keeping me crazy busy. Ken can not get off tour quick enough.
