Extensive 'back off' restoration of 1936 Gibson J35 © 2021 Guitar Angel

Hi Angela. I wanted to write you something that could be used on your website so here it is.

'The restoration work on my 1930's J-35 has been nothing short of miraculous. Having sent it to you for a diagnosis on a bellying top, you told me that you had discovered broken X-Braces, back  cracks, side-splits and a top that was in places no thicker than 0.5mm. Over the course of 3 months, numerous emails and step by step pictures, you have rebuilt a fragile and damaged guitar to it's former glory, retaining both it's originality (where possible) and most of all, it's sound. Your care and attention have been second to none and you have returned to me a guitar that is stronger than ever, fit for the ages and well on it's way to making it's 100th birthday. I cannot thank you enough for restoring this old box of wood and strings and for giving me back the chance of hearing it in its fullest glory. Thank you genuinely isn't enough'

I have many guitars in my collection which get used on regular basis. Some have custom modifications, some have been restored and some have just had setups. All work is carried out by Angela and is done to a very high standard. She's the first person i go to for parts, repairs and advice.

(Re Facebook page)  Excellent page Angie! For anyone thinking of checking out some of these guitars or getting some work done I can vouch for the quality of craftsmanship. I am a regular customer and have had all of my guitar  work done by Angie as well as having guitars built by her. Her work really is second to none, with prices always surprisingly affordable as well. I would not trust anyone else to look after my pride and joy(s) As an experienced musician I thoroughly suggest guitarangel to anyone!

Rickenbacker 4001 truss rod anchor mod, repaired and refinished top. © 2021 Guitar Angel

Hi Angela. I got to put try my refurbished Ric 4001 last Saturday. It sounds Amazing! Like a 4001 should sound. The refinishing of the top and fitting an original bridge looks superb. I am very impressed with the paint match, I don't think that you would know it has been refurbished. You did a fabulous job thank you very much.

Fender strat neck refinish tinted satin nitro © 2021 Guitar Angel

I received the neck today. The refinish looks amazing, I love the colour it looks even better than it did in the photos. How do you get that silky smooth feel? Can't wait to try it out when I build up the Strat. Thanks for all the pictures and updates. I have another one I would like done soon so will be in touch.
