  1. Hi folks, I have a guitar with a good size crack in the finish.It's a little hard to describe but the finish has actually curled up and you can feel the ridge very easily where it is "cracked".The finish is a quilted sunburst with a clear poly on top.I'm not expecting to do a flawless repair but I would like to do the best I can with it.It was like this when I received it so I could not say what happened to it.Looks like maybe something was spilled on it or perhaps exposed to heat.Hoping the photo will make it a little easier to see.Would appreciate any info you could tell me.I have seen a lot of articles where the poly finish was filled with crazy glue and sanded down but I need to find a way to make the poly finish lay flat again so this situation is a little unique I guess (it looks like if you saw a map and there was a mountain range,best I can describe it,I would say the ridge is about 3 mm high).

  3. Thanks Scott, That's good to hear.I am considering sanding it off and using tru oil on it as it has some noticeable scratches and is a little too glossy for me.
  4. Hi folks, I have an acoustic guitar back that I would like to glue to the top of a tele electric guitar blank I made. Just wondering if this can be done and if so is there any potential problems I should be on the lookout for.
