Westbury Restoration

This Westbury electric was in dire straits with no electronics or frets. A friend gave it to me and I felt compelled to bring it back. It was made in Japan at the famous Matsumoku factory known for quality. This instrument had the following work done to it: Fretboard relevel, frets installed and leveled, rebuff and polish, new pickups and electrical components, new control cavities cover plates built, action and intonation re-set. Turned out nice!

Marshwood Remodel, Update from March 16, 2012

Ok. Some work has been done on this Guitar: New logo and Clashtastic 12th fret inlay have been installed. The material for this was reconstituted red stone. Frets put in and leveled and the neck finished in tru-oil. Body sanded and dyed black with alcohol stain. The next step will be to sand the stain back a little, and begin applying lacquer.
