Repair and restoration of vintage instruments usually means that a local guitar shop orders parts from a supplier and makes them work to give your instrument an appearance of being restored.
We actually make all attempts to restore the old parts, bodies and necks before even thinking of applying a new part to your instrument.
Wether it's a loose output jack, scratchy controls, or your prized '58 just took a nasty fall. If you can get your guitar to us, it will be fixed right. We do work for many area guitar shops and we talk to dozens of people everyday.
If it requires cutting a new rosewood or maple slab for a fretboard and meticulously hand cutting a radius, or if it requires a replacement solid maple top on your Les Paul, or a top on your Martin acoustic, our equipment and hands-on luthier work will ensure the best resto. Plus, we actually include a certified factory certificate that shows the work was done professionally.
Relic and Antiquing of instruments is also something we're accomplished with. Ask for a mint restoration, or for your parts and refinishing to replicate the age and condition of the rest of the instrument.
Electronics and pickups from any manufacturer are at our disposal with competitive prices, or you can supply the parts you wish to use.

You are given a note of authentic certified Gibson repair being done, and may use that at the time you want to sell the instrument.
We have all of the molds, body shapes and styles for most any Acoustic guitar ever made. Our jigs will replicate replacement sides to your instrument with exact precision. We also have the original templates for many tops, brands, necks, and head stocks. We have inlay and sound hole material and specifications again to either totally restore your guitar, or to match the repair work to the wear and condition of the instrument.
