New Project Guitar Day (Takamine) I saw this F-312 on Guitar Center's Used Gear pages. I've had my eye out for one of these for a long time, and I'd prefer the solid-top version, but I thought the lam-top would make a great camp guitar. I ordered it. A rep from the store contacted me to let me know the guitar had been returned having a lifted bridge, and he wanted me to have a chance to cancel. I offered less money for it as is. . .they accepted, and here it is. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I'm a long-time Takamine nut. Except for the bridgelift, and a little crackety spot on the right side of the top, the guitar looks nice considering it's almost 42 years old (made in June 1978). And I dig the "lawsuit" slotted headstock, the wide nut, and the no-dots rosewood fretboard, which meets the body at the 12th fret. I could use some advice about fixing the bridge lift (Bridge Doctor?), and also I see that the truss nut is rusty; that might be a tricky fix too. I haven't tried yet to turn it. I like this guitar a lot, and I'd really like to get it into playing condition. I'm not worried at all about investment or return--I've blown more money than this on 'way dumber things. I'd welcome any input on how to proceed from here. If I'm too far over my head I'll take it to somebody, and I'd welcome recommendations about that, too.
