    You think thats good.... yeah ok, it is, but I got a Les Paul with a Natural Mahogany finish so you can see the grain. Its got the same break, yet the repair is practically invisible... the splints are specially selected to match the wood grain, and if you didn't know about the repair you would simply not see it. Even when you do know it takes a bit of finding.

    There are some real craftsmen out there
