Take a look at some of the repairs we’ve been working on at the shop!

It’s always nice to see guitars come back in for routine maintenance.  This gorgeous Taylor 610E was in for a set up and fresh set of Daddario XS strings.  This guitar has way more low end then what you would normally get from a guitar with maple back and sides!  Taylor sure knows what they are doing, have you had a chance to play one yet?

Ernie Ball and St. Vincent really know how to design and make a guitar.  This Ernie Ball St Vincent BFR was in for a set up and some minor adjustments.  We threw on a set of Ernie Ball Paradigms and now this really sings.  As a side note, this may be one of the best feeling necks that we have ever felt, the baked flame maple is a huge plus in our books.

WHOA!!! This reissue 1957 Gibson Les Paul is a monster!!!  The owner dropped it off to do a once over so it would be studio ready.  A light level and crown, a full setup and a fresh set up strings and this now plays like butter.

An amazing Gibson Firebird Custom flew in for some tweaks and adjustments to get ready for the studio.  There was a good amount of playing wear in the first position so it needed a level and crown, a light setup, and a quick check of electronics.  We threw on a fresh set of Ernie Ball Paradigms and this thing is ready to Rock!

If you have been on a patio anywhere from Columbus to Port Clinton you have probably seen and heard this Gibson G-45.  This guitar has more miles on it than most cars!!!  It needed the first three frets replaced, a level and crown, and a set up.  Added a fresh set of Daddario strings and it is now ready for another million miles.

A very cool Gibson L6S was in for a level and crown to help with its badly worn frets.  Fortunately, there was enough fret left to do a level and crown and a set up, it is now ready for the road again.

Another bird flew in for some work. A fresh setup and a level crown took this Epiphone Firebird from nice to amazing! Feels great, sounds great, and plays like butter.

All the vintage vibes are with this vintage Hagstrom. It came in for a rewire and a setup–  gotta love cool guitars.

This drool worthy Gibson Bicentennial Firebird flew in for a level/crown and a little TLC. Such an amazing guitar…great playing, great sounding, and great looking.

Just off the bench today, a spectacular Rickenbacker bass that was in for a pickup swap. The bridge pickup completely gave out, so the customer wanted these Seymour Duncan replacement pickups installed. Tone for days and this bass has some serious mojo!!!

This Fender Squier Strat was on the bench to take it from cool to extraordinary! Influenced by one of Mick Mars strats, this customer wanted Seymour Duncan pearly gates pickups in the neck and bridge and a vintage style single coil in the middle. This has no ordinary wiring going on…master volume and tone, plus a dedicated volume for middle pickup. To top it off, we coil tapped the bridge. The tones are limitless! Just to make this more special, a nice tortoise shell pickguard was modded and added to swap out the previous all black guard.

A late 70’s Univox Les Paul Jr was in for a setup and a pickup swap. We installed a Seymour Duncan custom shop humbucker under a dog-ear. The pickup was wound to the specifications of the Seymour Duncan ‘59 humbucker.

On the bench today a 2019 Gibson SG standard CME exclusive in for a setup and a tuner replacement. Replaced the Gibson plastic button tuners with these Kluson tuners, no drilling required, direct replacement. The customer wanted the guitar set up for D standard with 11’s. Plays and feels like a dream.

This Epiphone Dot was on the bench to have a Bigsby trem and tension bar installed. We also added a roller bridge to make things work as smooth as possible. This is ready for some rock & roll.

This super clean 1941 Kalamazoo came in for some replacement tuners and a setup. These Golden Age tuners from Stew Mac are a direct replacement for pre-war Kluson’s. We have used these tuners for multiple restorations and always have been elated with the outcome.
