Yamaha FG-230 Bridge Repair
This Yamaha was left at a music store repair shop in Texas in 2009. The owner asked the repair shop to provide an estimate. The esitmate was more than the owner felt the guitar was worth, so he just never picked up the guitar. This happens a lot at guitar repair shops. I bought the guitar from the Texas shop in 2010. I then repaired the bridge as shown below. I gave this guitar to my brother, who still has it. I played it at his home on April 8, 2013. The bridge is still secure, and the guitar sounds amazing.
