Over the past few days my son in law Dan took my beloved damaged Takamine guitar to bits to repair it and this evening he brought it back mended and I’m thrilled. The wooden bar where the strings are secured had literally lifted off the main body due to heat damage from being kept in the loft. Other than a scuff mark you wouldn’t know it had been damaged but you know what – I love that scuff mark. My guitar has had a few knocks through the course of its life but then it still cuts the mustard. A bit like me. Love it.
