Hi all. I have a newer ES 175 on my bench which has me stumped.
The customer brought it on for a set up but right away something looked off... the top was sunken between the two pickups.
I removed the pickups for a quick peek inside, expecting to find a
broken tone bar, but I think what I found is even worse:
This in clearly a victim of hot car syndrome... and I think it's worse than a broken brace because that glob of glue has hardened this way and I can't force the brace back....this is the worst spot but here's some more pics:
The only thing I can think of is removing the tone bars completely, cleaning up and re gluing... but I would REALLY rather avoid that if at all possible. Any suggestions?
