12 string headstock crack repair

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!!

Oud repair

We repaired this oud that was once broken in 4 pieces, headstock snapped off, real bad.. we put it together nicely and set it up, now feels and plays like new, and the headstock should withstand the different tunings. The owner, Jack, was pretty stoked. Cheers to our buddy Main for working on it with us! (…we forgot to take “before” pictures  d’oh!)

Guitar crack & binding repair

We repaired some pretty bad damage on the back edge of this guitar and fixed the binding as well…also repaired a bad dent in the front, and replaced the matching vintage binding on the pickguard. Then some nitro spray to blend! The customer was so sad when he dropped it off, but super stoked when he picked it up! whew! bas

1934 Dobro guitar repair

This 1934 Dobro guitar came to the shop in bad shape. We gave it 2 new carbon fiber truss rods (non-adjust but for extra support), new ebony fingerboard with matching vintage cream binding, a vintage bone nut and brass compensated bridge (both carved from scratch), fixed all the electronics and gave it a setup.
No need to refinish it, as it looks super cool as-is! The customer wanted to add a jewel light to it, so we installed an amber light to match the vintage look, with an on/off switch. The jewel can be easily changed to a green light instead, depending on the mood.
This was actually a pretty big job all said & we’re happy it’s done – and done right!
