Some years ago my lutheir sold me, very cheaply, an old school plywood bass that had been dragged across so many floors that the top and back were smaller than the ribs. Over a winter I built up the edges with maple veneer and a sort of wood-fiber bondo, and eventually made a working instrument. Well, about eight years and many basses later, he's made me another offer- a nice old carved bass that someone rented and (accidentally, we assume) rode down a flight of stairs. He doesn't have time to piece it together and thought I might be interested. I am. I know a bit about repair, and I've hung around his shop enough to see how he does a lot of repairs- how how to remove a top, making cleats, etc., but obviously there's a lot I don't know. Now I could spend a lot of weekends in my lutheir's shop bugging him about repair technique- and believe me, I will- but is there a good text I could read up on to learn the basics of repair techniques?
