The $8000 Vintage Flamenco guitar that many people felt was a write-off is finished. It was never going to be perfect but I’m happy with it. There is no filler (bog) in it only lots & lots of pieces of timber & a massive amount of various glues. The major challenge was that the timber was so dry it turned to powder when I was working with it. The guitar has now been re-hydrated & the timber is no longer dry.

It was a little bit of work each day for about 3 months & most of it was a labour of love because I’m only charging the customer 25% of what the price should have been, but it was an interesting challenge & a learning curve.

The side had to be dark to conceal the damage.
