Headstock upgrade on Epiphone

Zakk Wilde Epiphone to Gibson headstock upgrade

Zakk Wilde Epiphone to Gibson headstock upgrade

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!

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!
