Hello TB. I'm usually on the BG side since that's what I play but with an upcoming move it looks like I'll finally have to let me old DB go. This was purchased for me by my parents back in the mid-60's from a used instrument dealer. I was told at the time it was at least 30 years old and had been refinished. I think the guy also said it was made in Germany. Unfortunately it fell into disrepair and hasn't been played in a very long time. Missing are strings, bridge, two tuners, saddle and tailpiece (at least). Looks like the neck was repaired. The back had started to separate years ago but seems not to be getting worse. I'm trying to figure out what to do with this beast- is it even worth fixing? I'd appreciate any guidance from the members here.
