repairing a vintage classical.

Recommended Posts

A few years ago i bought the most wonderful sounding C1, no clue what year or version because of the arcane serial numberings. Still Beautiful sounding classical, with the kicker a neck that isn't warped. But The binding is loose on the body, and the nut is busted at the low e.

 

not sure if i should take it to the local gibson authorized luther / repair shop, who did a great job on my les paul melody maker when the tuners snapped. Or if I should bite the bullet and get it into the nashville facility.

Neither of those repairs are serious and since they never made classicals in the Nashville facility they aren't going to have any more insight into their construction than any other good repair shop. The nut should just be black plastic with a zero fret, right? If that were on my workbench I would just graft another piece of black plastic onto the existing nut and reshape it, but that's just me.
