Lute Top Replacement

Lute Top Replacement: Damage Assessment

Damage Assessment

The damaged top from a different angle. While most cracks that are parallel to the grain are easy to fix without significant acoustic compromise, this is not the case for the crack across the top. It would be impossible to restore the strength of this top without damaging the acoustic integrity of this instrument. The client and I agreed that a top replacement is the only appropriate procedure in this case.
