Hey all. First time poster here. Nice site you got going, glad I found it.

I'm still learning chords, etc.. Getting better but havea far way to go. Anyways, I have a seagull and recently a thin piece of wood on the inside became loose & vibrates with the lower notes like crazy.

If I could pop it open I'm sure I could fix it with some carpenter glue or something.

Any advice?

Much appreciated.

bad idea...very bad idea...if you dont know what you are doing, you shouldnt even try that dude..."pop it open"...its glued lol you could really screw it up badly. go to a luthier and save yourself the headache. working on an electric guitar is hard enough, let alone an acoustic.

you need to look at it with one of these kind of mirrors thru the soundhole-

has the wood seperated and is flopping around in the body or is it just coming loose?- ive had luck with loose braces using a syringe full of watered down titebond (applied thru the soundhole or f hole) and a clamp- but if yu are not comfortable with it, see a tech
