Subject: RE: Is it still an old Martin?
HPL guitars are virtually unrepairable as the laminated layers splinter in different ways. Some luthiers have experimented with fibreglass repairs, and epoxy has to take the place of conventional guitar glues.
Probably less hassle to replace completely rather than get them repaired. However, as long as they don't shatter from a real impact, they're incredibly durable.
