So, my bassist gave me an electro-acoustic (former) 12-string Bjärton.
I did some research, and it was made somwhere between '66 and '67.

I can't seem to find what model it is, every model I've looked at is different in quite a few ways. Mainly the pickup-placement, the bridge, and paintjob.

It's very beat up, but I'll try to repair it.

I will post pictures in a short while.
Fender Jaguar
Morley PVO +

I'm trying to fix it, sorry to keep you guys waiting.

I will definitely put the pics up within an hour or so, just have stuff that needs fixing before...

The guitar

Closer pic

The bridge with broken and missing plastics

Serial number and pickup, and a crack

Headstock (notice missing and broken tuning pegs)

Another hole


Neck, with a glued crack.


The pics got HUGE when I embedded them, so I'll just link them instead.

The guitar is strung with nylon strings, but as you can see, the pickup is magnetic, so it has to be a steel string guitar, right? The pickups work, I tested them by tapping a screwdriver on the magnets when I hade the guitar plugged in.

Several tuners are missing, and I don't know if they are sort of universal, or if I have to hunt for the right make. They look smaller than usual tuners to me, nothing like the ones on my electrics or my Epiphone.

I need to find new plastic thingys for the bridge, and, as you can see, one is broken, and I need to find some way to remove it without damaging the guitar, which I will have a hard time doing.

The body has several cracks and small holes, I think I'm gonna use some woodfill to try and repair that as much as I can. The body will also need some vacuumcleaning, as there is a lot of dust inside the guitar.

The finish is beyond repair, so I'm just thinking whether I should leave it be or refinish it. Or just sand it down a little to get it more even.

the finish aint beyond repair.

Wood filler on the cracks/holes+ even sanding+a bit of stain+laqer it. Check out Stewie macdonalds site under the newletter section, he had something on how he repaired a 1930 acoustic guitar with prety much the same problems as that one
