Baltimore area flamenco guitarist Fritz Lerma brought this great vintage Miguel Rodriguez blanca for some crack repair, a re-fret, and a golpeador extension.
I took some pictures documenting this guitar and some of the repair. Let's look at some of the features:
The front and back of the head:
The heel, back and side:
The top and the wear:
The bracing pattern:
And now for the repair. The crack on the top was on the treble side near the end of the bridge wing. The thin cypress back had a few cracks, too. The neck was cracked on the nut end from one side to the other:
Because of the wear on the treble side I made a golpeador extension of clear plastic. As with all repairs, it was carried out using hide glue.
