Hi - how do I determine if it is deep enough - I can post more photos if needed?Pete Beer wrote: ↑Mon Jun 19, 2017 1:21 pmIt could be worth repairing if it it deep enough.
I have just repaired a guitar which picked up an especially deep string ding which the owner left unrepaired. Nine years later, a crack formed starting from that ding. Feeling on the inside, the original ding had pushed fibres out all the way through the top. If your's is not too deep it may be ok.
Twelve hole bridges may be more prone to this in that many players don't seem to know how to tie them. Carbon strings are definitely more prone.
I did exactly that, and it did not stop the string slipping. When the string did slip, the melted ball left a very large dent due to the added flying mass on the end of the string. That circular dent from the ball at the end of the string went pretty deep into the top. I was able to steam it back to about half the depth, but it will be a permanent reminder that I need to tie a 12-string bridge differently.
