I must thank you for posting these repair projects. There's not much money in building unless you have a gig name.

That's nonsense. I've seen mistakes in construction from pretty much every company out there, but he bought this guitar new, and the bridge came off in a month. It started bellying shortly thereafter. Washburn glued the bridge back on, but hasn't stood good for the bad construction.
I'm well paid for my work, but I felt bad for this guy, and i gave him a break. He's a good customer of mine and he takes exemplary care of his guitars.
I'm not sure how long it's been since he's seen the guitar without the belly. He said it never sounded good, and I believe him. He's thrilled with it now.
Washburn is an American company, and a subsidiary of a Canadian company. They build these overseas. It's clear they need to do something about the lack of quality control.
