Even in the best of hands bad things do happen. This Spanish built classical guitar belongs to Oklahoma City guitar teacher Mike Fresonke. He describes it as his “working guitar.” I felt complimented when he called and asked if I’d take a look at it, and was pleased that he was not waiting to have it fixed – waiting is generally not a good thing. The top was cracked loose from the sides from the lower waist to the rear end. Mike didn’t care about a full refinish, so the crack was fixed and reinforced and finish repaired so that it’s safe to play. Spanish built classical guitars are amongst my favorites. This should give him many years of satisfaction.
