We picked up this poor creature off ebay for well less than $1000. It was a bit of a risk as we had no idea what it would look like under the .250 thick epoxy finish. Fortunately it was not as bad as we feared and it looks like we have a VERY workable surface to refinish. Keep an eye on this space as we provide updates on the project.
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day holiday!
We just wanted to give you an update on TEG this week. We are now a stocking dealer for the following items:
D’Addario strings (both Electric and Acoustic) and MusicNomad products
We are adding more items to the stocking list and will update shortly.
Have a great week!
The link below is a program to help those musicians affected by hurricane Harvey in Texas:
This week we have seen an Ibenez in for a “deep clean” (yes we do stuff like this!). It was gigged hard and put up wet, so we have made it nice and shiny! We also just got a Squier bass in for set-up and output jack repair. And……….we have a Tele project that the customer started and we are going to finish up for him. This needs assembly, custom bone nut and a set-up. Oh yeah it’s got a B-bender and an upside down headstock with a super FAT neck. This has been a fantastic week!!! Enjoy the holiday weekend!
We are in Santa Barbara this weekend at the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration. We are visiting suppliers, taking in some educational seminars and networking with other industry folks. Back in the shop on Monday! Have a great weekend.
So we figured it was time to get official and get a logo for the company. We went with a retro/vintage style and the guy who did it for us Jesterr from Fiverr was awesome to work with! So what do you think? Let us know!
First of all, we are so grateful to our customers who trust us with their instruments. We love this and it’s why we do it!!
So this week we have seen, a beautiful Taylor 214DLX for a set-up, a Martin Custom and a sweet Takemine AN10 for pickup installs and a very nice Fender Telecaster Thinline for a set-up, new custom bone nut and a little fret work. And they all received a FREE MusicNomad Premium Guitar Care Kit!
Whew!!!!!! And it’s only Wednesday!!
Again thank you for choosing us for your guitar repair!
A beautiful Loar LH-310t VS stopped by for an action adjustment. These beauties are known for an odd neck angle so we did a bridge adjustment to help lower the action. The right move would have been a neck reset but it’s just not worth the $ to most folks. The P-90 sounds awesome too!!
We are back in the shop this week after a great time at the GAL Convention and doing a little training in Nashville for a future project. We have some special hours this week so please make a note of it:
A heads up, the shop will be closed 7/19-7/31.
This week we are headed off to the Guild of American Luthiers convention in Tacoma, WA and the following week doing some training with the goal of becoming an authorized repair facility for a major brand……wish us luck!!!
We are officially carrying @musicnomadcare products at the shop. For now just a few of the basics and of course some new toys for the tech!!! We love this stuff and they are local to NorCal. Musicnomadcare.com
