Classic Home
A 1940's Gibson AJ that needed a top refinish. The first picture is the stripping process, and the second is the final beautiful product!

Electric Home
A Gibson SG that had previously been retrofitted with a tune-a-matic bridge but the old holes were never repaired. Well, I came in and fixed that and made a customer happy!

Telecaster Home
An excellent 1954 Fender Telecaster that was in a house fire. My job, rescue and restore all of the smoke damage. The first picture is before and the second is fully restored.
