I'm looking to buy a 1940's Martin Acoustic around where I am, the only problem is it has a few cracks to the top of the body. It still plays fine, I was just wondering what could be done to fix the cracks, even if it's just cosmetic. Would a guitar shop be able to help me with problem?
dude i dont think ur going to find a 1940s martin that doesnt have cracks, take what u can get, and if i plays fine dont worry about it they're only cracks
i have a a 1940's martin, and it has a few scratches here and there. but that doesnt take away from the sound. and it sounds great. i think you should go ahead and get it
DONT DO ANYTHING! dude if its from the 40's who cares what it looks like, its original! dont modify anything
If you really want the cracks fixed take it to a experienced repairer. The crack, whether they be in the finsh or wood are not a easy repair to do -right-.
Usually even if an acoustic has a few holes in it, it won't effect the tone.
