Bigsby Install and Wiring Modification
This Fender Telecaster has been heavily modded. It sports an HSS pickup configuration utilizing Seymour Duncan pickups in a WD custom pickguard, push/pull “7 way switch” mod on the tone control, Vibramate bridge plate, and a Bigsby B5 Vibrato.
Pickup Cavity Routing and Pickup Install
This PRS custom 24 has been customized a bit more! We installed some Dimarzio super 2 pickups in the neck and bridge and we routed a pickup cavity for and installed a Dimarzio SDS-1 in the middle position.
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.
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.
