    No neck reset. Just lower the whole bridge into the top or sand the top so thin, it lowers it.

    This is non-political terrorism...... Are we supposed to laugh or cry? I'm not sure......

    That's what I'm thinking John. I had an uncle who, when he was talking about our 6" dropped living room and we were saying it really should be the same level...... he actually said, "You should probably fill in the living room." I said, of course, as apposed to what? He said (no lie) "Well, vs. lowering the rest of the house...."

    We sat there shocked waiting for him to say "KIDDING!!" But no.... he was serious. Poor stupid Bill...

    We sold that house, the buyer who was handicapped had the living room filled in. maybe we should've given him the other option??? LMFAO!!!!! HOOOO boy!!!!

    So about the bridge..........

    Tom, think he means it’s like painting a car with a blown engine...don’t think it has anything to do with the bridge. Then again i was wrong once before

    For the sake of clarity, I have no affiliation with the guitar or it’s owner. I came across the photo on the Guild Guitars Instagram feed and was astounded at the effort someone went to to avoid a neck reset. Looks like the bridge was lowered before it was “scalloped”.
    Just thought I’d share...more as a “caption this photo” joke.
