Crack in Sheraton II semi-hollow

Recommended Posts

I recently took out my Sheraton II guitar to play it after not having played it for a few weeks to discover that it has a crack in the body, starting from the lower f-hole and going out past the bridge. Judging by the crack going down the body in the f-hole, it doesn't appear that the crack is more than about halfway through the thickness of the front of the body. I am not entirely sure how this happened, but as I haven't noticed it until now, I am thinking it got cracked during a show and might be getting worse as I continue to play/handle it. Is this something that I should get fixed immediately? Also, can something like this even be fixed without having the entire front of the body on the guitar replaced?


I have attached two photos of the crack. Unfortunately I only have my laptop's webcam to take pictures with, but you can see the damage in them. The first photo shows the crack starting at the bulge in the f-hole closest to the pickups, extending back to the bridge. The second photo is a good overhead shot of the whole thing.


Thanks for you help!

Welcome! Its hard to tell from the pics.....BUT.....it looks to me like something that could be repaired without taking the soundboard off. Also something that DOES NOT alarm me as something needing 'immediate attention'.....!

Caveat.....That is just IMHO from what I see from the photos provided![cool]
