Factory Instrument Restoration
In progress – started 11/2011
This instrument is being brought back from ‘wall-hanging’ condition. I’ll be keeping the instrument in as near to original condition as possible. However I will replace the spruce fingerboard and will look at re-tuning the belly. It requires a lot of work and will be an ongiong project, while I’m not working on new instruments.
- New rosewood fingerboard (cutout)
- New rosewood tailpiece (almost done!)
- Repair and tuning of the belly
- New pegs, bridge, strings, assembly, cleaning and setup
The pictures below show the original condition of the instrument:
