Gouge Repair Touchup

This Epiphone DOT had taken a fall that left a big gouge out of the neck. A full cosmetically perfect touch up was not desired, nor cost effective. But, since it was interfering with the playability of the instrument, we did a quick fill and touch up to get it back to playable condition.

Overhaul for a Les Paul

Full overhaul of this Gibson Les Paul Custom. Repairs included: refret, dimarzio pickups installed, hand carved bone nut, and a full cleaning and polishing of the finish.

Locking Tuner Retrofit

Tuner shaft holes enlarged. Original set screw holes filled and touched up. New set screw holes drilled.

Electric Guitar Rewire

This Gibson SG came stock with a PC board wiring harness and quick clip connectors on the pickups. We upgraded it to a hardwired harness complete with new pickups, CTS 500K volume pots, 500k no-load tone controls, orange drop capacitors and new Gibson dirty finger pickups.

String Ramping

This client had shaved down his saddle for very low action. While all the notes played fine, the guitar had lost some volume and responsiveness due to the lack of break angle behind the saddle. By creating ramped slots, we were able to return that break angle and therefore some of the tone that had been lost by lowering the string height.

Acoustic Neck Reset

This Ovation Custom Balladeer had high action, with no height adjustment left at the saddle. We safely removed the neck, corrected the shallow angle, and reattached. This guitar now has a playable action, and room to adjust at the saddle if needed in the future.
