    Guys this is an old thread that was revived by a new member because it was relevant to his question about a completely different instrument.

    Welcome to LTG! Look at this video. The Martin factory is reglueing the bridge on one of John Mayers custom built stage guitars. As you can see all around the edge (looks like almost 4-5mm all around!) there was absolotely no glue on that Martin guitar and during the repair process they remove that lacquer to get a perfect bond for the bridge again. Interesting to watch at least if one has not seen something like this yet. Reglueing starts at about 1:40.
