I just finished this guitar! It’s a 7-string baritone guitar based on my St. Charles Avenue model. Anyone else out there play a 7-string baritone guitar? There’s not too many of them out there in archtop form. That’s for sure!
This neck was broken with a vertical break that is very hard to repair. I had to make a special fixture to be able to clamp the head and compress it horizontally and vertically at the same time.
I recently finished this St. Charles Avenue archtop guitar. It’s a 6-string archtop guitar adorned with Cresent City Elite headstock and tail piece inlays. This guitar also features a fully bound headstock, neck, and body binding. It has a 5-piece neck with Goto Delta Series tuning keys and a cranberry burst finish.
This was a Gibson SJ Deluxe acoustic guitar with a cracked bridge block, broken face under the bridge, loose brace and broken bridge. These repairs involved repairing the bridge plate with a thin veneer to the inside plus routing and adding spruce to the face underneath the bridge. Then I built a handmade bridge slightly over-sized to cover up all the mess on the face!
