Geo Posted December 15, 2008 Report Share Posted December 15, 2008 I'm fixing a guitar that was accidentally sat on. The soundboard received a long crack on the pickguard side, running with the grain. Because of the placement of the crack, the last ~2.5" of the x-brace on the lower bout treble side has come away from the top. I glued the crack in the soundboard. I tried sliding glue under the end of the brace with an index card. I gave it some pressure with a piece of wood wedged between the back and the x-brace. Unfortunately, when I went to test the repair, I still got some flex down there, and I can feel that the x-brace didn't take. The crack is fixed but there's still a fair amount of flexibility down there because of the last 2.5" of the brace being disconnected. Any suggestions? I've built an acoustic but this is my first attempt at repairing one. thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
