Top Replacement

Top Replacement


I have an early 70's Framus 12 string acoustic guitar that is in a sorry state.
The cost new in 1972 was 210 deutsche mark which would have been about 67 usd or approx. 26.4 gbp
I bought it in the middle 90's, third-hand. It was strung up as a 6-string and remained as such.
I will reinstate it as a 12-string.

This is one of those projects that has sat on the shelf for a few years.

This picture was taken a few years ago.

 

 

I removed the top with a pallette knife and a cup of hot water. It came off without too much trouble.
I have repaired a crack in the back and one in the sides, The sides have been stiffened with some added side bars.

It is a laminated top with an X-brace design. The lower legs of the X do not go through the sides.

Hey Guys,

I am exploring the various Vacuum Press systems and their uses. I am curious who on the Forum is currently using a Vacuum Press and what system you are using and for what applications in the build process.

Finish over ink art

25 Jul 2015

Posted by hansjudd in Open Build Talk

Hello my friends,
I have a box near completion, and a bit of knot shadow has magically appeared on the soundboard as I have sanded it down. I don't really want to re-top the box, so I was considering other ways to conceal the knot shadow (i.e. stain, paint, sunburst, etc.) In thinking through the choices, I realized that I have a dear friend who is an award winning pen and ink artist and I am considering giving him the finish sanded box to have his way with the top. However, I have no idea how to finish over ink art without potentially damaging or destroying the artwork. Google searches have not been particularly fruitful (i.e. "sharpie art" over the top of finish is not exactly what I am looking for).

Do any of you have experience with such madness? Please advise.

Thank you my friends,
Hans
