    I was made aware of this video on a flight-simulation/aviation site where I'm a charter member. A lot of guitarists over there playing all types of music. Enjoy.

    Well, he repaired it but I don´t think he had to toss away the original veneer.
    I think there are better ways doing it. But he makes it more stable than it ever was so it is a guitar Dweezil can use for the next 30 years. I guess Dweezil is quite happy about the repair.

    All the best,
    Robin

    50 hours of "actual hands-on work" x labor rate. Even call it $50/hr and that's $2500, plus supplies. Maybe a bit of a discount if you are a celebrity and allow promotional use...

    He's got a G-Dec 15 too!
