How very cool. I love the salt of the earth capabilities that allow people like Joe to bring guitars back to life.
I got that same email.
Five ten-hour days fixing it. Beautiful job.
I think I pulled it out of a Sweetwater email, I forget.
That's where I saw it first.
Although, you'd think a professional musician would use something like a SKB TSA case to fly rather than a standard issue Gibby case.
That's true. I never thought of that.
Apparently, neither did he...
I really liked the neck padding that Sweetwater used when shipping it back to him. Wonder where to get those when I have to ship.
Make your own. Go to the hobby store, buy some Styrofoam and one of those hot wire "knife" things and I'm pretty sure you can figure the rest out.
They should have hobby stores there right?
NO hobby stores. Wondering if Hardware store spray foam could work to make a custom shaped support that would fill the void?
That stuff goes everywhere though, and seeps and creeps all over the place. Wouldn't want it to go anywhere near a guitar whilst it was going off. I also wonder if it "gasses out" after curing, potentially affecting a nice finish?
If you have a hardware store that sells spray foam see if they sell celotex or similar closed cell insulation boards. I have made a flightcase insert for a guitar from that. Easy to cut with a stanley knife and can be covered with cloth like velvet or dralon too.
