David Antony Reid : : Luthier
is a multi award winning guitar maker with a strong international reputation for excellence.
If your guitar is valuable, sentimentally or in a monetary sense, then re-finishing shall be required to get the best job done.
This can be a little expensive, and I'm afraid there are just way too many variables, and way too many different kinds of guitar to give an idea of cost for these sorts of repairs.
So the best thing to do is make an appointment for David
to view your guitar, and then he
can give you his
best advise, and give you a quote.
Sending images of the break can help, but the damage shall still have to be viewed in person to give an accurate, solid price.
Some lesser expensive guitars can be repaired relatively cheaply if it is a clean break, and you aren't so worried about aesthetics.
Please click the link below to send a contact form or to call to make an appointment.
In the meantime, the best initial advice David
can give is: Let the tension off of the strings immediately, keep any splinters that fall off, no matter how insignificant they may seem and don't let it get damaged any further by trying to bend it back in place, or over handling it.
Put it in its case or gig bag a.s.a.p.
It is best for David
to handle it as it was when the accident occurred.
