Restoration and repair

As specialists in vintage restoration work we are well versed in both acoustic and electric guitar construction. Our traditional approach to repair techniques uses appropriate materials and tooling and we always advise the repair and servicing of existing parts where possible to retain originality and value.

The success of all finish work is dependent on the quality of the preparation. Our dedicated paint department is fully equipped with professional prep and spray equipment to ensure consistent results, with all processes performed traditionally. When a full refinish is requested, stripping existing finishes back to bare wood is essential and is done very carefully by hand to retain original contours.

Custom builds

Alongside restoration and refinish work we also custom build high quality guitars under our brand name "42nd street guitars" . We have a standard model range or we can build to your own specs. Alternatively we can supply  nitro finished bodies and necks along with hardware kits as a basis to enable you to build your own guitar or to upgrade an existing one.
