1970s Guild acoustic getting a new top

Here are a few photos of Dan Gable working on a 1970s Guild acoustic. This thing is getting a brand new top !!! This guitar belongs to its original owner, it’s just unfortunate that something fell and smashed the top….we’ll get her all fixed up though. The photos on this page are oldest to newest as Dan gets further with the progress.

Heating the fret board to get the glue hot to be able to pry off the fret board.

Prying the fret board

Fret board removed

Getting guitar body situated in jig, so that it keeps the sides of the guitar from collapsing when removing the top

Jig all glued up
