David, in the beginning I intended a quick repair for a friend. This was related to a loose joint between the neck and the
dowel stick. Inspections showed more upsets created by people doing things totally incorrect and damaging. As a result
I was given the instrument. Repairs involve a new dowel stick, new fingerboard, new bridge and a new nut. Repairs are done as and when and perhaps the most interesting part is the bridge - curved feet are top of the list, next to be considered is using 2,3 or 4 legs. Either way the bridge will be topped by a fret wire ridge using DHP 24 wire.
