That thread from the discussion about strings. ( http://www.gretsch-talk.com/threads/what-strings-do-you-use.189412/page-4#post-1143445 ) In spite of the bad weather forecast, it was sunny in the afternoon and I took other snapshots of the repair. So after falling on the wooden floor, that was two separate pieces: And now the head and neck as they are about 6 months after the repair: The slit at the top of the head was there before the crash, as the luthier did nothing about it, I suppose it's harmless. Unfortunately, that photo of the other side is blurred. But flowers are beautiful... I do think he really did a good job. As far as I remember, I paid about 100 euros. Including: he cleaned the fretboard (guess that was its first cleaning) and re-stringed. Now that SG's future ain't bleak. Ain't it neat?
