"Many Clamps" - A Gibson tradegy averted

This Gibson Blueridge was found by its owner in the garage after his son tried to fix the "spiral compound fracture".

The poor kid obviously had no clamps, used 5-minute epoxy, and held it with his fingers while it set.

There was flesh from 6 or 8 fingers still on the fragments when it was brought in for repair. It was pretty gnarly!  I can picture the poor kid trying to get his fingers loose - musta hurt like hell!
