Repairs and restorations
It's always rewarding to bring an instrument back from the dead. Here are a few that have passed through the workshop.
A couple of Regal Ukuleles with a new lease of life
The Tiple Ukulele sounds like a herd of tiny angels stuck in honey
Headstock repairs might not always be invisible but the guitar plays again!
As does this Petersen Polk-a-lay-lee
An Airline electric mandolin needed a new bridge.
New scratchplate built for this archtop when the old nitrocellulose 'guard disintergrated. A common problem with this material.
A banjo uke and a banjo mandolin both needed new bridges and overhauls.
Some things are just beyond saving!
A Kay built Silvertone mandolin.
An Mandolin built in the late 1800's in for an overhaul and set up.

This violin came in as an unplayable wreck and left sounding as sweet as any violin can.
