1994 D25s/TS
« on: September 25, 2017, 08:19:19 AM »
I found this beauty on Ebay.

Serial begins with 94 so i think its a cedar top. The tone is beautiful, its not too loud or too bassy. Its very clear and bright but not thin. Waht i discovered is a small gap between Bridge and Top. Is this normal?

If you are interested: More Pictures can be found on my Instagram (See Profile/Website)

No...what is happening is that the bridge is lifting...not an unusual condition, particularly if the guitar has been stored with the strings at full tension.

Fortunately, resetting the bridge is not an expensive repair. IIRC it cost $25 to get the bridge reset on my Epi AJ500RC.

Gotta LOVE cedar soundboards!!! Yours is a solid wood soundboard, BTW.

Cheers!!!

Thank you for your Insight. I will try to do it by myself as it seems not too complicated when you have the right tools. I think the owner stored the guitar in case for years. i restringed it and it seems taht it stays where it should but will reglue it down in the next weeks.
