Guild S-100 bridge replacement by Nicole Alosinac Luthiery

Guild S-100 Bridge Replacement

This 1970's Guild S-100 had a very common problem for these particular guitars. The bridge was unstable, strings "pop" off the saddle make it hard to play. There were no replacement bridges available at the time with the correct string spacing so it was repaired with a Schaller bridge with adjustable string spacing.
Repair of Huttl Guitar by Nicole Alosinac Luthiery

W. Huttl Archtop Headstock Repair

This archtop was made in the late 50s or early 60s in Germany by W. Huttl. This unique guitar seems to have survived the years quite well except for the headstock drying out and losing its overlay. The guitar also had a few other repairs while in for restoration including a neck reset and regluing some binding. It left the shop ready for another 50 years of making music. It actually had a really good "rootsy" sound for some types of jazz or folk. Definitely an interesting project!
