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!

Our friends at Larrivée Guitars have moved to California.. and gave us a great deal on their laser cutting machine. We couldn’t pass this up and got it! It was one of the workhorses at the factory, so as much as we are sad that they will no longer be located in Vancouver, we are also very stoked that we will be using this beast very soon bas
Richard from “Over the Coals” brought in his guitars for a cleanup/setup, just in time for his show tonight alongside Terrifier at the Biltmore!

Happy New Year, everyone! Here’s to another great year! This year we had our baby boy – ARTHUR! And lost a very important friend. At the same time we watched our business flourish with a lot of hard work and dedication.. Thanks to all for the support, we appreciate your friendship and business! We have been sooo busy with repairs that we will be dedicating the first few weeks of January mostly to our builds. More custom Basone guitars coming soon… Cheers and party safe tonight!
