  1. Oahu Hawaiian Parlor c.1928

    May 23, 2014


    Built in the Hawaii in the heyday of the hawaiian lap steel craze, this little girl was restored in our workshop some 5 years ago and is a treat to play.

    Sadly her previous owner is down sizing and moving overseas.

    So we are very lucky that this vintage example is staying in Australia.

    $1450.00 inc case

  2. Stella Harmony Lapsteel

    Stella lap steel


    You know, sometimes our little parlor guitars just scream out to be …well something different.

    To that end, that’s exactly what we’ve done here. The P90, the gilded paint work, the roadwearing, all come together to make something truly unique. Some will love it, some, not so much, but boring she is not.

    For those who choose to love this one off vintage treasure

    1970 Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar

    This beauty has a big bottom end with loads of top end clarity. Select spruce top with mahogany back and sides. Really purty little finger picker.


  4. Broken Headstock Repair

     Guild Broken Headstock Repair


    As with a lot of broken headstocks this happened sometime between the guitar being put into airplane baggage and retrieving it from airplane baggage. Needless to say the owner was not impressed. But all is not lost, things can be done!


  5. 1962 Harmony Rocket

    1962 Harmony Rocket

    Can you believe it! This beautiful vintage 1962 Harmony Rocket had been sitting around the shop in a half finished state for over 2 years, owing the fact that John was so daunted by the prospect of re wiring her, that it sat in the “too hard” basket.

    until now…

    Finally here she is, freshly re wired, re fretted and ready to go. The super slim neck will be a treasure for those with, shall we say “petite hands” or maybe not. The Gold top pick ups are surprisingly fat and the tone is warm and woody.


  6. Major Maton Repair on an EBG808L

    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.
