Washburn Mandolin Restoration: Loose Brace

Loose Brace

This brace is directly underneath the top cant and counteracts the downward pressure from the strings. After closer examination this brace was not only loose, but originally very poorly glued to the top during manufacturing. Dirt and dried excess glue had to be removed from underneath the brace with a modified scalpel, to prepare for reglueing this brace properly.
