Howdy, JR. I haven't put up pics but I'll take one later and send to your email address, if you don't mind sharing. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org
The reason is that I use my Kodak pic program to make my crappy dial-up send good images. The fix my guitar got is quite simple though...a structural bridge across the soft spot just to flatten out the top so it wouldn't move more. I don't think constant loosening and tightening of the strings is good for the bridge, so this holds it in place 'til I get the final fix together. That may never happen because the L0 sounds true, but a neck reset is pending. so I may have that brace pattern restored and make sure I use 11's or lighter when I string it up. Later, Dave.
