    I think the repair job is a winner :) I'm glad you didn't turn it into a "feature"....LOL.

    so aiming to order the bridge/neck plate/skrews/tuners mon/tues.
    now a question about the finish,
    i was thinking of oiling the mahogany and only lacquering the spalted top.
    i have no xp with oils,what would you think if i oiled the top also?

    You could use Tru-oil, make it a little shinier.

    My experiences are with oil finishs that contain some varnish. I've had good luck with Watco Danish oil. I haven't used Tru oil, but it is popular in the forum here.
