Below is some highlights of the guitars recently through the workshop
Every once in awhile we're lucky enough to get something really special through the workshop. This 1960 Guild A150 was recently in for a restoration, it was previously owned by one of the pioneers of Gipsy Jazz, Paul Degville.
The guitar had sat for just over 4 years since he sadly passed away and it's new owner wanted it back to it's best. The main problems were it's electrics needed a complete overhaul and the headstock veneer was cracking and lifting due to its age so needed some attention!
Check out the photos below as well as a couple of links to Paul playing the guitar!
Photos showing the headstock under various lights, the top two photos are before the lacquer has been cut back and polished to a smooth finish. Once done, the hardware is refitted and the guitar can be restrung.
