Here the previous separated cracks around this screw are shown repaired. These corners are often torn off as the acetate pickguard shrinks over time. In this pickguard's case the corner had not torn loose but was well on it's way to doing so. This corner had warped slightly, curved upward due to the slow migration of tension on it by the screws as they tilt inward as the pickguard shrinks over time. When I rejoined the cracks in a closed fit, the edge on the right side of the crack was warped higher than the left side of the crack. I sanded, compouned and polished the repair level on top and along the side bevel, leaving a slight misalignment of the laminates; As good a fit as could be done without extensive delaminating surgery and implanting faux plastic laminates made from epoxy.
