David 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.

David Antony Reid Luthier :: My experience in Luthiery and guitar repair

David Antony Reid is a true "hand-maker" of bespoke, contemporary and innovative stringed instruments. As a multi award winning luthier, David can take up to 400 hours to craft and sculpt his average guitar - an approach employed due to strong feelings regarding a constant touch-and-feel understanding of the materials and construction method used. He believes aesthetics are important, but tone and feel are his ultimate interests.
Amongst his other accolades, David is credited with inventing several modern guitar construction innovations such as the double-edged-scalloped fretboard, the ergonomic guitar neck, the dual compensated saddle, the multiple frequency soundboard and the multiple diffraction/reflection back.
More importantly David has been highly credited for his considerate use of materials, employing timbers such as 3000+ year old bog oak, 100 year old fallen sequoia, re-claimed old Cuban and Brazilian mahogany which had previously been fire surrounds, bank counters and staircase posts; English fruit trees, sycamores and maples which fell during the 1987 hurricane in the south of England, and the very sought-after African Blackwood from the only 100% Forestry Stewardship Council approved sawmill in the world.
Due to recent, serious ill health discoveries in his lungs, David has been forced to semi-retire from Instrument making, only concentrating on one special piece a year, and emphasising more on instrument repair. He now takes very limited orders for comission, but block-books clients in to his London studio every six weeks for setups, fret dress etc, and continues to receive instruments for all repair from around the world at his Perth workshop in Scotland.
...
At the end of said term, David, received "The Cup For Academic Achievement" for his work with mathematics and physics - despite only just being diagnosed as a dyslexic who could not read or write.
Much of what David learned whilst studying engineering has been applied to the scientific side of his instrument designs.
Just before completing his formal lutherie training, David was awarded, Guitar Of The Year, by Guitar Magazine, UK, for acoustic guitars over £1000.

David Antony Reid Luthier :: OH, CANADA! - Guitar Aficionado Magazine Vol 4/ No4 2012

The London based luthier David Antony Reid, known for his ingenious bracing systems and thoughtful use of lumber, showed a steelstring with a top made of flamed Sequoia from a century old naturally fallen tree and another acoustic guitar whose back was fashioned from Spanish walnut and English sycamore, woods that had minor cosmetic irregularities. 'Luthiers can be incredibly wasteful," says Reid, who wrote a dissertation on this subject, "scrapping a lot of wood that they find imperfect but which is beautiful in its uniqueness and which in no way compromises the tone."
