A long time ago in a factory far, far away a prisrine @fender precision bass rolled off the line. Fast forward 40 years and this has to be one of the most 'used' instruments we've ever looked after. Many pickup changes later and we think we may have finally found a winner. @seymourduncanpickups quarter pounder J and P bass pickups and a Audere 4 band preamp. 
Mmm, Jazz 👌

It is a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a.. Actually we're not sure what it is. 1960s? Almost certainly. Japanese? Could well be. Cool as? Pretty much. Maybe the lovely people of @drowninginguitars could shed some light? Anyone with a reasonable guess, we'd love to hear it!

This @gibsonguitar Les Pauls neck was just a little bit too chunky and the nitro was proving too sticky for it's owner. So, using a late 70s deluxe as our template we re-carved the neck and re-finished in a satin Polyurethane. Nitro-cellulose and Polyurethane aren't always the easiest to blend together but the join on this one is seemless to the touch.

Definitely the coolest (and heaviest) bass we've had in for a while. @squierguitar Troy Sanders body, @electricalguitarcompany aluminium neck and @easttoneuk preamp. Thanks to @daveblackpeaks for dropping it in for us to fit the neck and carry out a full setup.

Just finished on a major overhaul of this early 1950s Levin Model 27 Texan, inc. neck reset, fingerboard extension, soundboard crack repair, tongue brace installation, new nut and saddle and binding repair. Lovely Brazilian rosewood board (which I've singularly failed to photograph well), dropped it down a tone and it really opened up. Lovely.
Couple of long evenings cutting and installing inlays and now we're finally making some progress. Nothing quite standard about this build but keeps us on our toes!

Widerange humbuckers really seem to have come in to their own over the last 10 - 15 years. But, not everyone's a fan so on this @fender Thinline Telecaster we swapped them out for a couple of bill lawrence L500 pickups and a hand made custom pickguard to match the rounded profile of the pickups. The altered curves of the guard and pickups really work well with the f hole. 
Nice 👌

We had a last second fret dress come in on this 1963 @gibsonguitar ES175 come in so we thought we'd share the end result. The lacquer exhibited both crazing common to 60s Gibsons and some tackiness on the back of the neck, but both polished up eventually. Otherwise, the Brazilian rosewood board has great depth of colour, low output pickups andsome fairly aged hardware. Lovely.

If you're  a @joebonamassa fan you'll already have an idea of wjatvthsi guitar is. For everyone  else this is @gibsoncustom 1959 'skinnerburst' Les Paul signes by the man himself. Not the best of days for Gibson but a nice reminder they get a lot right too.

Little bit of tasty vintage goodness to keep you going over the weekend. 1956 @gibsonguitar Les Paul goldtop in for a few tweaks. We were going to do a comparison with the @gibsoncustom '56 re-issue we've got in, except it's a '57 and it's gone. So, you've just got a lot of photos of the oeiginal instead!

Got an @gibsonguitar Paf out of a 1961 335 this morning for inspection. Not often you see them taken apart so here you go.
@malmo_gitarrverkstad thought this might be of interest.

How many times have you heard; "It literally sustains for days!". Well, this one literally does. @prsguitars se24 fitted with a Sustainiac music sustainer, @dimarzioinc Air Norton (with a custom spec replacement magnet), bone nut, fret dress, new plates and all the knobs and switches a man (in this case) could want!
