  1. thank you! I have checked it out and am going to try it. I'll post my progress
  2. Hello This is my first post and I am brand new to guitar repairng. Thanks in advance for any input you have for me. see all pics Let me start by saying I'm an advanced beginner guitarist at best and I really love playing. but for some reson I have had about 25 guitars already the best ones being a 2014 gibson LP studio pro , and my current ones a Martin gpcpa4, and a Gretsch electromatic 2155. and had a bunch of crappy ones also. Any way I just got 4 more today although these all need work which is why I'm here. I'm barely up to attempting a neck adjustment, never mind repairing a body... so If you all would be so kind to let me know if I'm on the right track here. Today I got a Harmony Monterey hollow body prob 60's, Two Teisco tulip style guitars and a Regent 12 string acoustic. I like the looks of the Harmony but the back is coming off and the binding is missing a piece. Is it worth fixing possibly restoring? Can i do it myself (is the cost of tool ratio to value of the guitar i would have in the end worth it)? do you think a luthier would trade the repair for the other 3 guitars? I' have no attachment to any of them so ultimately if I don't loose anything on them i'm good . but if i could come out with a nice guitar thats cool and if i can make money thats better. Im into these for about $200. if that makes any difference. I also thought maybe fix the one teisco looks like missing the bridge piece and needs gone thru but Im not really interested in it or the 12 string so I think ultimately I want to know , the best way to make money on these guitars vs maybe having a decent hollow body when repaired or your ideas???
