This Fender Kingman came into our shop after having been stepped on. Needless to say the top was completely ruined, the braces had all come off and the sides where both split. A lot of people would say its not worth fixing, but sentimental value does in fact play a part in the decision.
It was the gentlemans fathers guitar, who had passed years before.
It was then that we decided to get this guitar back to it proper state. First we had to remove the top and replace the kerfing. Once that was completed, a new piece of spruce was joined to what was left of the existing top. From there we went and build new braces for the top. Then the entire guitar was refinished. After those jobs were complete, we were able reattach the bridge and neck and make all the necessary adjustments to get it playing its best.
After many hours of painstaking labour, we were very happy to return the guitar in full working order. Playing and sounding great for his family to enjoy for many years to come.
