Here are pics documenting the repairs that were done to my 25 year old Martin D41. It required all of the bindings re-glued, a neck reset, fingerboard resurfaced and re-radiused, a refret in stainless steel (last forever!), a back brace re-glued and comprehensive set up.

Finally got it back on Monday and it's now almost like new!

looks done right. tenon shims too. good job!


I am super happy with the work, the guitar is 25 years old and is now almost like new again.

The repairer was Chris Melville of Brisbane Australia. When I was in his workshop he allowed me to play all of his own guitars which he had made. They were brilliant and his workmanship is flawless.

Unfortunately it's hidden under that jack socket I added.



He had jammed some kind of wedge under the tailpiece and pushed the body in a bit. It wasn't much, and the body is covered in dings anyway, but at the prices he charges I expected better. I originally took it to him to remove the nut and reset it, something I would normally do myself, except this one was epoxied on, and put a secondary saddle behind the existing one to improve intonation. The work was OK.
