A word about re-profiling

  Every once in a while a client will raise the fine point of re-profiling, sometimes without knowing it. Re-profiling is when I am asked to re-work the combs and beads because they are chipped or dented. The picture to the left shows an honest 'rubbed out' section of a tenor top's combing. The part has been stripped and sanded and now the option is available to have it re-combed or not. Usually my advice is to keep things as they are unless a structural issue needs to be considered.
