3-Piece Inspection Mirror

About This Item

Here's a versatile 3-piece set of mirrors that you can tape together, fold up, and insert into a soundhole.

When unfolded inside the guitar, it gives you a 7-1/2" x 12" flat viewing surface, for the big picture of the guitar's interior. Made of nonbreakable mirrored acrylic, it frees both your hands for the job. Supplied untaped.

Just what I needed

By

Verified Buyer


I'm just a guy trying to fix a crack. This just what I needed. They come as three separate pieces, and I am not sure how you would tape them together and still have it fit in the sound hole. Seems like nice quality. Acrylic so it won't shatter. Certainly better than anything I could find in a hardware store.

Good tool w/ 2 reasonable limits

By

Verified Buyer


I find it better than a hand held mirror w/ an LED, it certainly shows more of the insides. I found 2 problems with this mirror but have only 1 solution. #1, this folding mirror has 2 inherent "seams", 2 edges where the 3 sections come together inside the guitar. These seams interrupt my view of the inside. #2: It's too big for me to get it inside anything smaller than a dreadnaught guitar. I cannot get it into any classical guitar. Easy solution to that; I just took a hacksaw to it and shortened it. To me this was money well spent and I will continue to use it until someone offers a mirror that can bend & roll to the confines of a guitar box.

Loved it for first 2 years. Then out of the blue the mirror became foggy. It was always stored in it s original cover and a droor. first i thought it was dirty so i washed it with water. It think it just mirror sticker used that desintegrate...

The big picture!

Being able to see a much wider panoramic view of the inside of a Martin D28 is a lot better than using one of those little inspection mirrors. Truly give you the "big" picture. Easy to use and handy and all get out! Good idea, good product!

combined with a bright light you can see virtually every nook and cranny inside an acoustic guitar. Very useful.

A necessity for working inside a guitar

Folding problem

By

Verified Buyer


Great concept, but I found assembling a true 3-piece "folding" mirror impossible, unless you put clear tape on the mirror side between two of the segments so you can "accordion" fold it. I assembled only 2 segments into a folder and left the third piece off.

A Must Have

Verified Buyer


This is a must have for acoustic repairs. The price is reasonable and you definitely get quite a bit of use out of this!

Great for customers too

By

Nice quality that will not shatter as they are acrylic, not glass. With inspection light inside (new energy saving bulbs don't get so hot) my customers are given a 'bird's eye view' of the problem. Useful and a must have for interior acoustic repairs.
