My old Jusek is close to unplayable. I have a set of weedwackers that I’d like to put on to reduce the tension on a collapsing top. I would have to file away on the tailpiece and nut. Not too concerned about the bridge as it’s getting a bit potato chippy. I don’t know if I should hack away at it or not. The bass is sort of end of life and I just want to extend it. I’ve taken it to my tech but not much he can do. Due to the recent pandemic, my budget is zero. I don’t think I have anything to lose at this point. Man, there’s a sweet Kay locally that I would love to look at.
