And my serious question .. The rocket has a crack in her.. I want to restore the guitar as it has a lot of sentimental value... how would one go about fixing this?

My guess would be it's a definite glue and clamp job...but I really don't know. Nice axes, and just a friendly reminder, there's a guitar repair and maintenance section that would be a good place to post this in. :D

Guitarin' isn't a job, so don't make it one.

You could take the guitar to a luthier and have them repair it.

Or, you could try yourself. Get some good wood glue and apply it sparingly to the crack. Use some sort of padding to protect the guitar and use C clamps with blocks of wood to squeeze the crack together. Wipe off excess glue. Allow the glue maybe 24 to cure. That should fix the crack. The finish is another story. You might have to strip the current finish. That would probably be a lot more work and require a lot more skill.

There are books you can purchase that show how to repair guitars. Pick some up. It would probably be a very fun and even financially profitable hobby.

Thanks for the replys.. this forum has been a great help. I have her glued and clamped sitting in my basement as i type. I sanded the area down to get better adhesion. I really hope it works. Im going to refinish the whole guitar as that black is spray paint when i painted it at 10 yrs old.. i didnt know any better but i had to assemble the guitar before i could play it. I shall keep you guys updated :D
