Hello, this is my first visit and post! I have a ca. 1900 German 3/4 bass that is cracking on the top and ribs. It gets worse everytime I look at it. I know I have to bite the bullet and get it fixed, but sheesh... I am probably looking at a small fortune to get the top pulled and the cracks fixed. Anyone have any suggestions for repair people in the Houston area? Any other wild ideas? Fixaflat? Nail polish? hammer and nails? Bondo?
