This is a custom tele we are building for graham. It has our new custom traditional headstock with 3+3 mahine heads. All Korina tonewood with a one piece Honduran Mahogany neck, AAA Rosewood fingerboard bound in matching Korina. It will have custom inlay, 1 Lollar imperial in the bridge, and a Seymour Duncan wound specially for him. Also, a nice touch is the reverse tele plate that will be upside down and recessed below the finish.
This is the first of our Basone line of guitar care products: RESURRECTOR Fingerboard Liniment! People always ask for advice on how to care for their instrument, and the Fingerboard is a good place to start since it can get gooped up quick! People also get stoked when they get their guitar back from our shop, and want to know the secret of such a smooth board…We can’t Tell you what it is, but we can tell you it is a sauce that was passed on from a couple of legendary local builders and we have been using it for ten years… enjoy!

Our shop has more space since we have renovated & here’s how the retail part looks now! We’ll post some pics of the “back” (aka woodshop or “where the magic happens” :-] ) later.
Also, we are always receiving new stock and accepting high-end consignments. So come down ASAP! bas
Placing the soundholes on one of our custom guitars – customer was very specific about where he wants the soundholes on his Basone Phoenix, so no problem! sure is turning out a beauty. Will have a carved top!
1911 Vintage Gibson Mandolin repair – this instrument needed a lot of love. We fixed a few major cracks, replaced the fingerboard binding – which took some heating, bending, aging and patience – gave it new tuners, new tortoise pickguard, a cleanup and setup, and finally re-aged it to look more authentic. Our staff put quite a bit of effort into this little guy, and it was well worth it! 103 years old!
