So my guitar fell today and it sort of cracked. Is there any way to fix it?
>>
You can try epoxy and sanding/refinishing however if ther is any separation of the body and sides then you will need to secure this. My suggestion is if the guitar is worth more ham 1000 just take it to a licensed luthor. Otherwise ou will probably just fuck it up

It just cracked on there and part of it chipped

Leave it alone. It adds character.

If the internal bracing is fine, you can get away with filling it with similar colored wood chips, epoxy it, and sand it.

From what I have read about this, you need to put some glue on the two pieces, and clamp them together before refinishing with some epoxy.


Sorry for doing this, but I also have an acoustic guitar repair related question. My guitar's bridge cracked into two pieces, right where the saddle is held in place. I already know how to replace it since I read some tutorials and watched some videos, but what I need to know is if I can get any bridge or do I need to get a specific one.

This. No reason to go to extra trouble.
>>
>>928544
why did you remove the chips

>>929107
In this case the epoxy would not just be the finish, it would fill the gaps and stabilize the wood.

Most acoustic 6 strings will do, try to get it as close as possible to the old one. Just make sure the strings are the same length with the new bridge. (from nut to saddle)
