We have done a lot of work in the last couple years on this Epi-Zakk. Changed the inlays to real MOP, Sperzels, pickups, components, customer figured why not?? So we found a gibby headplate and performed major surgery with some BC maple. Paint & setup, finite!
Two Ernie Ball MusicMan John Petrucci model guitars autographed by Dream Theater – customer wanted to have them clear coated so he could play them without wearing the sigs off.
Disassemble, clear coat, reassemble & wireup!
This Gibson LP CustomShop headstock was cracked in two pieces so badly, that we had to reinforce the break with two steel rods.
After glue-up, steel reinforcement, a white touch up/clear coat and setup, it looks and plays like new. Feels great to bring another guitar back from the dead!
We converted two Fender Squier strats into a double neck guitar, as a prop for a commercial – same one that used the BC Rich “V” that we finished Sparkle blue a few weeks back. This double neck is soo much fun and doesn’t weigh a lot due to the basswood bodies! We have nailed the “coarse sparkle” paintjobs, so come on in!
Eastwood Airline Bass TV Yellow body refinish – We had to fill the old volume holes before paint, now 2 remain! After painting TV yellow, we also upgraded the pickups with 2 active EMG’s and a new 25k wiring job (& switchcraft jack)….Voila! New look and sound, bas.
We ask you to spread the good word and help us to keep improving as the best cool local guitar shop in our great city! If you answer 30 or more questions you will be entered in a draw for a trip for two to the world-famous Kāʻanapali Beach Resort in Maui, Hawaii.

12 string headstock crack repair – this guy came in from Tofino, was looking to buy a new guitar because he dropped off his broken Garrison at a “big company” and they couldn’t fix it (or wouldn’t) – they warned him a repair like this would be much more than what the guitar was worth..so naturally, he brought it to the BASONE SHOP, fixed no problem. We even resprayed the black for free since we had the spraygun out, & the repair cost was waaay below what he expected. Alright…we care!!
