  1. Valquero Parlour c. Mid 1920’s

    October 16, 2015

    DSCF1037This little girl was restored by Matty Bryant (Matty’s Guitar Service) 5 years ago. Matty worked with us for 7 years and in that time he restored no less than 20 parlour guitars before starting his own shop. It’s a great restoration. This old timer features solid Birch and Maple construction and the soundboard is modified to an X-brace system, neck re-set and re-fret…. Amazing tone and playability

    Oakland Vintage Parlor 1927Harmony Parlor Guitar

    Now this girl is a treat! Harmony made only a few of this model. In face, in 1927, this was the top of the line with solid spruce top, solid koa wood back and sides and checkerboard binding makes this guitar a testament to Harmony’s ability to make fine guitars when they put their mind to it. So beautiful

    This little baby was so beautiful when we got her that the idea of “modding” her from a pin bridge to a string through body was not going to fly. So we did only what was needed; Neck reset, refret, replace broken bracings etc. Check out that decal, check out that label, would you do to a beautiful vintage parlor guitar than that?

    And she sounds amazing! History history history! It’s all here for very little

  6. Major Maton Repair on an EBG808L

    October 18, 2013

    Maton EBG808L Restoration

    This guitar is suffering from a condition known as “man-sat-on-guitaritis” and as a result the soundboard caved in. Distraught, distressed and ready to try any new fangled, yet to be proven medically, luthiery magic in order to restore his Maton EBG808L to its former glory. Luckily for Dave, Maton repairs are somewhat of a specialty for us.
