Before and after of some surface finish work on a lefty Vintage singlecut.

This guitar came to us with multiple spots of adhesive on the top. The owner had affixed a variety of artwork to the top that had since been removed and he wanted to make it look new again. Through a variety of techniques and chemicals we were able to remove the adhesive, drop fill dings that were down to the wood, and buff the finish back to its prior glory.

Here's an example of a creative solution that just missed the mark. This Ibanez bass came to us with an active pickup system that was working intermittently. The install included a metal washer used to ground all of the leads. Although unusual, this would have most likely worked if the washer itself had been grounded, which it was not. We removed the washer, grounded all leads appropriately, and got the pickups working as they should. Here are the before and after.

Epiphone has really stepped up their game in the last year or so. This Bourbon Burst Les Paul Standard looks and feels fantastic. Once we get that pesky 3 way switch in line, it will be ready to rock again.

Chinese made knockoffs are always an adventure. This particular model, the "Fender" Teledukester, is no exception. Our favorite feature is the slot cut for a fret tang underneath the nut slot. This Teledukester has been refreshed with a fret dress, new pots, jack, switch, and a bone nut. Now it plays and sounds like it should.
