Can this be fixed?

This guitar came in with a broken bridge plate, loose and fractured braces and of course a lifting bridge that included a portion of the top. Time was spent staring at it, pulling it out of the case, putting it back in again.....

Ignoring the overall damage, fixing it, one problem at a time, it came together. The structural issues were resolved and the top flattened. It plays well and is a nice sounding guitar.

It started as an experiment

After cold bending one side I did another and started down a path making something with no particular ending in mind. Here it is so far.We'll see what it turns into.
