This lovely vintage Tokai Les Paul Reborn was brought into the workshop for a fret recrown and polish, after being imported from Japan, ready for resale in the UK.
The usual process of marking the fret tops, to preserve the level of the frets, before each fret crown is refiled to it's correct curve was done.
The frets were then hand polished, transforming the look and feel of 40 year old frets! The fingerboard was also scrapped to remove the gunk and dirt before being lemon oiled.
Once the recrown was complete, the guitar was detail cleaned and setup ready for the customer! Plenty of photos of this lovely guitar below.
