Busy times again this week. Wouldn’t have it any other way if I’m honest.
First in to the workshop on Monday morning was another Epiphone 335 Dot in need of a new tone pot. Although very tricky the results were well worth it. My client also had a full set-up done on the guitar and was very impressed with the results. It’s amazing the difference a proper set-up can make to a guitar of any value, age, make or model.
I delivered the Jerry Donahue Fender Telecaster back to its owner on Sunday afternoon. Martin’s comments can be seen in the ‘testimonials’ column. That was a bit of a challenge due to an expanded fret slot making the re-fret that much more difficult.
There are a number of guitars in for modifications this week, a couple of pickup changes and upgrades of pots etc. There are also a couple of refrets to be done and one guitar that desperately needs a fret dressing. These include Fender, Epiphone, Ibanez and a very nice old Hohner.
I’m looking forward to getting a Tokai Strat in on Thursday for some work. That’s going to be a very interesting project.
If you’re after a Fender Stratocaster then I have this one for sale on eBay so please let me know if you need any more info on that one. I took it in a week or so ago. The only work it really needed was a new nut so I’ve replaced the old plastic one with a new bone nut. That’s made a big difference to the tone and sustain so a job well worth doing. The guitar itself a great player and has really good tone. It actually makes a change for me to get a guitar in and not want to fiddle around with it too much so I’ve leaving this one as pretty much stock.
