Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / WD 21s Neck Joint FYI
« on: December 04, 2017, 06:20:40 AM »
Just in case someone is looking for the Info while preparing a Neck Reset on a WD21s: The Neck Joint on a WD21s/n from 1987 is a five dowel butt joint like this:

i own a D44SW and noticed that the inside of the guitar is laquered. The back, top, sides and bracings are covered in a unfinished laquer. Does anybody know what this is all about? Does it affect tone? Also when i reglued the bridge i noticed that the finish on a d25s is a lot thicker than i thought. Why did they put so much finish on the guitars back in the days? Newer guitars use a lot less laquer in my opinion.

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.

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.

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)

Trussrod is fine. Its Bone. The hot needle was a good idea. I sanded down the bridge and now this beauty plays perfect!

Thank you for the recommendations. I will get these today and will test them this weekend. Also i want so sand down the saddle to get a better string height. Does anybody know if this Guitar was equipped with bone saddle / bridge?

Cheers from Germany
