  1. Broken Headstock Repair

     Guild Broken Headstock Repair

    untitled

    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!

  2. 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.

    $1750.00


  3. 1977 Fender Telecaster Deluxe

    March 13, 2014

    DSCF5283A shiny, lovely 1977 Fender Telecaster Deluxe. What can we say that hasn’t been said about this little classic?

    The fat, warm tone of the wide range humbuckers are offset by the one piece maple neck and northern ash body. This guitar is original in every way real stunner with street cred to burn.

    $4050

     

     


  4. National Bluegrass 35

    DSCF5054

    National Bluegrass 35 compact resonator C. 1963 with molded Reso-glass body.

    The First time I ever saw one of these cutie’s was back in 1992 at a Deborah Conway Gig. Deb was cute, however her Reso glass took the cuteness and “cred” factor to a whole new level. As you can tell it left quite an impression on me, even though most of you, dear readers weren’t born at that stage. I coveted one then and still covet one now. If I could “back door” it without the little lady finding out.  Listen to the intro of this song and you’ll get an idea of what our little girl sounds like, please excuse the second rate audio.

    $2500


  5. Windsor Banjo Mandolin circa. 1923

    Windsor banjo mandolin.

    Here’s a piece of history for ya!

    The Banjo mandolin or “banjolin” was designed with the vaudevillian beer halls of the late 19th through early-mid 20th century in mind. With no Electric amplification, volume  and projection were the key. I suppose you could say that “in your face” is another way to describe it. With that in mind, I present to you this “large bowl” professional Banjolin is just that. It’s a headache inducing, ear splitting piece of mid range punch. Wanna cut through in your folk ensemble? Wanna get sacked from your Folk ensemble?  Wanna annoy your neighbours? Wanna get evicted?…. Well this is for you.

    PS everything that should be done has been done

    . New Calf skin head

    .New tuners

    .Re fret

    .French polished

    . Set up with hand made bridge

    $695
