Repairs in London 

I just did a stupid thing. I accidentally bashed the bottom of my guitar and a split now runs from the point of contact right round the topside to the shoulder. What are the repair options in and around London?

Sheepishly,

There must be options in London, but in case you don't find one, I highly recommend Stuart Christie in Alton, Hampshire.

Foro member Steven Eden looks like he is a nice day trip away from London.

Dont wait too long because the sides want to straighten out which will make closing the crack and gluing it more difficult.

Oh I’m on it, I want my guitar back asap.

I’ve decided to blame the double glazing we had installed. I said all along there is nothing wrong with wearing mittens indoors.

A good repair will last for ever or until you bump into something! I have a soundboard crack repair that has lasted 53 years so far.
