  • Nightmare bridge reglue. The previous repair person didn't properly remove and reglue, they just squirted super glue inside and tried clamping it. It obviously didn't hold so when I removed it I found a bunch of areas tainted with saturated super glue. I had to first clean and patch those areas with fresh spruce (finished pic above). Then I could start approaching the repair like a normal bridge lift.  #bridgelift #acousticguitarrepair #yamaharedlabel #guitarepair #luthier #bostonluthier #blackcatguitar

  • Bridge reglue on an older Yamaha (Japan). This one was part of a father & son repair. They both brought in their acoustics and both had lifting bridges. This one went pretty easily but the other had a warped top with that typical "load" behind the bridge. With those I remove the bridge, blast the bridge plate with some hot steam and then clamp the top back flat before attempting the reglue.  #blackcatguitar #guitarrepair #bridgereglue #bostonluthier

  • 1976 Rickenbacker 3000 -- This is a very cool piece. It was handed down to my customer by their dad who was a professional country musician. I brought this one back from the dead. It was in massive forward bow and unplayable when I got it. I replaced both truss rods, leveled the board and gave it a fresh refret. I also repaired the damaged (original) pickguard. This thing is back up and running and playing superb now!  #blackcatguitar #bostonluthier #rickenbacker #guitarrepair

  • One of the more difficult wiring layouts I've had to deal with. This customer is very demanding (completely insane). This strat has mini hums and single coils. They wanted two completely separate circuits that did not interact with one another. One side is 250k the other 500k and there are 4 mini toggles. One to toggle between circuits and the other 3 for each individual pickup. This took routing, thought and a lot of aggravation to get this wiring and nonsense to fit cleanly.  Oh, and did I mention the entire guitar had to be shielded! It's all set CK. Your ready to take this one to the moon! #blackcatguitar #bostonluthier #guitarwiring #crazycustomerrequests

  • This vintage Ric neck was left sitting with out any love for way to long. A heated steam iron to loosen the glue between the board/neck and then clamping into backbone while the glue cools/resets can sometimes fix or at the least help the problem. The forward bow wasn't to bad on this one so I'm hoping for the best. #blackcatguitar #guitarrepair #bostonluthier
