Gibson Ripper Restore
DESCRIPTION When this bass came to me, the original pickup had been replaced and the new one didn’t fit properly. I had Seymour Duncan hand make me a new one that matches and fits. They did an amazing job. There was a sponge super glued to the pickguard. So I handmade a new custom pickguard. The original 4 way rotary switch was replaced with 3-way toggle but the customer still had the 4-way. I re-wired the 4-way rotary switch back to factory settings.
DESCRIPTION This guitar came to me never played, no volume, tone, or switch holes/slots in it, no holes in the neck for the locking nut, and never assembled. I added the LED lights and routed a battery box in the back of the guitar.

1974 20th Anniversary Les Paul 9
DESCRIPTION This guitar came to me in really bad condition. I was told it was sitting in a shed for years. I’m not sure if I’ll ever see another 20th anniversary ever again. We replaced the frets, tuners, knobs, all the electronics except the pickups, stop tail piece, and the nut. The hole by the electronics was a coil tap switch someone put in there a long time ago. The customer chose to just leave it. Also, the fret board and head stock were re glued. This guitar sounds awesome!
