Restoring antique and vintage instruments makes up a considerable part of my work. I have a particular interest in working on 19th century romantic guitars, but also guitars from the first half of the 20th century frequently find their way into the shop. Most restorations are done on commission, but occasionally I will find an instrument that provides a challenge, and offer it for sale through my website after it has been brought back to it's full potential. For restorations I use hide glue, shellac or cellulose lacquer to maintain the authenticity and originality of the instrument.
For an estimated cost for the restoration of your instrument, please contact me.
