Because great guitars deserve this.

 

 

 

One of the biggest problems in the restoration of vintage guitars is the availability of parts.  You might get lucky and pick some up on eBay or the random private sale, but you'll pay an arm and a leg.

We have faced this problem time and time again, so we did something about it: we make our own.  As difficult as this may sound at first, the reality is even harder.  There's a difference between making something that fits and making something that's right.

The key to our parts is a process that we call "forensic engineering".  To the extent that it is feasible, we make our replacement parts to the same standards as the originals, using the same materials and the same processes.  The goal is not to make do; the goal is to make great.
