    BACK FROM THE SHOP...my '05 'burst F50R...

    She's back home, finally!

    Yep, you can still see the scar, but it is MUCH better than when I took it there!
    Wasn't as bad as I had thought, and it wasn't really a crack thru the wood, touched up to "players' grade". (I didn't want it refinished or to disturb any other part of the guitar..."Just make it not so noticeable")

    I wish I would have taken "before" pics, but as you might recall from my previous post ("Here I sit...brokenhearted") I was SO upset that I rushed it to the shop, to see if George Bailey really could fix Zuzu's petals! It looked awful!!!

    Now, its simply a battle scar, and a lesson learned! She's still a beauty!

    In some angles, you can barely see the repair...in other angles, more so...







    I lucked out! David Neely is "da MAN"!

    Retro:
    Unless you had told me, I would have NEVER seen a scar and not sure I did see one in my "just now" eye-balling of it. That is a mighty fine looking guitar--Congratulations!

    Thanks, but in certain light and angles it looks more obvious. However, I am so happy that it turned out as good as it did!
