Bringing life to an old guitar

I recently repaired a well used and hard played Guild D-40 circa 1968. It would not hold tune, the bridge was cracked through the center, the bridge plate was shot, the pick guard was falling off. I had to make a new bridge out of rosewood to an exact match and fit. In the end it played like new.
