Gibson Les Paul Custom Shop broken headstock repair

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!

2 Fender Squier Strats converted to a Sparkle Blue double-neck guitar

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.

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!)
