Repair ceiling cracks
Gaping ceiling cracks caused by drought sometimes require a costly repair. If they are only closed with gap-filling adhesives and secured by crack deposits, the repair can always be seen at first glance. Properly executed, this repair represents a stable variant, especially for simple instruments. For high-quality master guitars and historically valuable instruments, however, the crack must be lavishly ripped out. In the process, after the wood has been selected to match the fine structure, color and grain of the sheet, the chip is fitted into the crack and glued. The following retouching and paint restoration then completes the repair.
