    Default Opportunity for Apprentice Luthier

    I have a 1918 Gibson Model A mandolin with a newly caved in top. The top had been sinking for years and finally gave way. Tragic and very sad. It is not my main instrument, though I played it for years back when I was learning.

    I suspect it is a very expensive repair for a seasoned luthier, but might be a worthwhile learning project for someone who is learning and wanting to take on an ambitious project. We can discuss the terms privately.
