Some time ago Nik G. asked me to modify this Simon & Patrick guitar into a sarod…
but first a little damage had to be repaired…
I noticed that also the bracing became loose from the soundboard. Since I couldn’t find any long clamp, I had to do it like this :
After that, a nice triangled puzzle started.
The inner triangle contains the original piece of soundboard wood.
Now the triangles fit properly and after some sanding the finishing polish is applied.
Unfortunately, some decolouration appeared. I guess the sun needs also some job to do…?
