Once in a while we acquire a wonderful used instrument that may need to spend some time in our repair shop before it's ready for sale. We thought we'd give you a sneak peek not only at what instruments will be for sale soon, but also at the incredible skill of our Repair Shop. Mike Horan, Mike Runyon, Josh Baldridge, Matt Harmon and owner Jim Baggett do everything from basic neck adjustments to full restorations. Just click on the title or image to see all the photos of the instrument. After the repair is complete, we'll add new photos and it will officially go on sale. Completion dates are approximate. If you are interested in or have questions about a particular instrument here, just give us a call at 1-800-747-9980 or email us at .
Jim called this one the 'Ugly Duckling' and despite its appearance, he knows with a little care and TLC this vintage Gibson J-35 will sing again. Jim has done a refret on this, and put in a new saddle. He's just putting the finishing touches on it and it should be ready this week (end of March). For his thoughts on this J-35, and more detail photos, check out his latest blog post here.

This vintage 1939 Martin D-18 is our latest 'On the Bench' project. This '39 will be getting a neck reset, a new bridge, some TLC and a lot of cleaning before we release it back into the wild for sale. We feel pretty confident that under all the dirt and grime (and attached pickholder) there is a really nice but worn original finish, and a truly great instrument. Serial# 73525.
Check out Jim detailing the steps involved in removing the bridge and neck on our blog's On the Bench Update here.
