Here are examples of some of the work I do. I've left out the basic stuff like nut and saddle replacement, pickup replacement, etc. I'll try to show more interesting work here:

This old guitar was probably bought in America in 1905 by my friend Tom's great-grandfather when he came over from Italy, and had seen a fair bit of playing, as you can see. It had spent the last 30 years or so hanging on the wall. It was so frail, I was afraid to tune it to pitch for fear of it imploding. Tom wanted to restore it to playable condition and keep it as a family heirloom. I was originally going to simply get it playable, but ended up doing a much more thorough restoration.
