How to offend Tim…

Whoever attempted to repair the binding on this rare old acoustic guitar chudded the attempt to the point where Tim felt as if his reaction might lean toward violence if introduced. In the places where the binding was gone or broken through the silly person had ineptly and hilariously filled it in with putty prior to painting an approximation of the color pattern. Thankfully, Tim’s disgust is channeled into the careful rescue of this fine old instrument. Here you can see his hands delicately guiding a chisel along the surface, before gluing in pieces of hand-died binding, tinted to match the untouched original section (seen here in the 3rd photo down).
