Here we go again, mid 50's J45 with almost all the same problems as the last project, exceptions would include no JB Weld and no finish repair required...cheers!!! Everything was loose on this guitar, bridge plate & one brace were rolling around inside the guitar, another brace was entirely MIA! Had a Martin brace that was really close to the same size so I reshaped  & installed it and truthfully, it's probably a better guitar for it. New keys, frets, bone saddle & nut round out the final touches, last pic does not show the new pearl dots in the bridge, they were on order at the time.How does it sound you ask? Just look at it, that tells you all you need to know...possibly the best sounding J45 I have ever heard! I suffered extreme separation anxiety when it went back home...
