Finish Work

We all need to acknowledge the fact that sometimes our beloved instrument will age and absorb some level of damage. Sometimes that’s a good thing in that it adds to the uniqueness of the instrument, but it can also go too far in that direction and require significant finish work.

Fortunately, we’ve been doing both restorations and custom finishing work for many years, so we can make your instrument look like it just came out of the shop, have that custom burst you’ve always dreamed of, or add a vintage color tint. Here are just some examples of the types of finish work we’ve done recently.

A guitar that is difficult to play can take much of the joy out of playing music. We understand what players across the spectrum are looking for out of their guitar setup, because we’ve been there too.

Our promise to you is a reasonable turnaround time, great customer service, and a guitar that plays better than it did when you brought it in.
