before and during the restauration

comment of the Client :

“If you’ve you’re prized early 50’s guitar, with its original case damaged, missing the covering, or any part, look no further. Tom is the man if you want to bring back your case to its pristine shine.

He painstakingly researchs original parts and materials, and has an attention to detail and craftsmanship that can guarantee the best restore possibile for your vintage case.

He literally gave a second life to my old thermometer cases. Thank you”
