Yes we did – Vintage Gibson Guitar Restoration!

We do pretty much every type of jewelry work here at Oceanside Jewelers, but every now and then we get a project that provides a way to apply our bench skills. This time we had a customer with a highly sought after vintage Gibson hollow electric guitar. This one was special in that all of the components were original, including the broken tailpiece. We were able to rebuild the hinge that connects the tail to side of the guitar, undoing a previous solder repair and restoring motion to the hinge and preserving all the original parts on the guitar! In the end it fit perfectly back onto the body of the guitar and a decades old instrument got a new lease on life.

If you have an instrument repair, or any other specialty project that might requie delicate metalwork, don’t be afraid to ask the master jeweler at Oceanside Jewelers.
