Some of the repairs done at the Boston Guitar Repair Center are shown here. This gallery is a work in progress and Brant rarely thinks to take pictures while he's working...

New Fingerboard

Chipped Fingerboard

This chip has been poorly filled at some point in the past. The guitar is also being refreted and the fingerboard is being leveled.

The old epoxy fill is removed using a dremel tool and router attachments.

The uneven edges of the chip are squared off to make fitting a fill possible.

A piece of rosewood, approximately the same color, is cut and shaped to fit snug in the fingerboard.

The fill is held in with a special clamp while the glue dries.

Here is the filled fingerboard after leveling and refretting.
