I have an old Jackson Dinky EX body laying in my box of spares that ended up there due to issues with the body. It was a Japanese model Dinky with pick guard and swimming pool route. I'll upload pictures this afternoon when I get home to show the exact problem.
Whats happened it the wood in front of the post supports has cracked and provides lateral movement to whatever trem was in there and basically meant it was unplayable. The wood between the post holes and the route is only about 4-6mm thick which is why it cracked. Any suggestions as to how to repair the damage and get the body back to life? I was thinking of routing the wood between the pickup route and posts and inserting a new strip of wood thicker than what was there and redrilling the post holes to provide something a little more solid for the posts to push against.
This isn't the guitar but where I've highlighted the area I'm referring to. On this jackson the routing is MUCH closer to the post holes so the wood has split from the post holes to the route allowing the trem to move toward the neck.
Pretty much have to dowel and redrill them.
