    Nice!
    What's the deal with that bridge?
    Or, are my eyes ( and the angle ) playing tricks?

    Thanks for Sharing this ... Great insight into the art of Guitar Restoration. It is wonderful to know someone like Curt
    still exists out there, and I can send my guitar to him if I ever need to. I sure hope he continues to update the projects part of his website, it is priceless!

    Seen some of Curt's work and it is amazing what he does, I had a little chuckle at the sub-heading "Beautiful guitar that had some neck issues" the first picture is a body with no neck.... yep that is a serious neck issue I would say :)
