Split tenjin! Chipped itogura affecting sawari!


Well, F*dEx broke my Shamisen, the luthier tried their best, but, should I just use
wood-filler to fill up that biiiig gap shown in the picture?


I don’t have an answer but did the luthier explain why he or she didn’t repair that spot?


Hallo, not at all, but did explain why he couldn<t sand down the cracks


Seems like the OP’s question flew under the radar…

Did you try the wood filler?


Hallo, not yet, just bought some Quikwood, so waiting for delivery…
