Take a peek at some of the varied guitar repairs from the last two weeks here at the Malone Guitars workshop in Billericay, Essex
A stainless steel refret for Ryan’s Fender stratocaster
Ryan had assembled some cool parts for his strat, but they needed some work to play nicely together. He also wanted some shiny new stainless steel jumbo frets and a handmade bone nut.
A bridge repair for a Kimbara acoustic
After almost 40 years in a loft, Elaine’s 60s Japanese made #Kimbara came out of hibernation as something to do during lockdown. Unfortunately when she tuned it, the bridge let go, taking some of the finish with it. So, it had a full service and set up, along with a bridge repair, finish retouching and repairs to the case hinges and covering. #maloneguitars #guitarrepair #billericay #guitartech #luthier #luthiery #classicalguitar @ Malone Guitars
Deep clean and set up for a 30 year old Epiphone Sheraton
Darren’s peach of an Epiphone Sheraton had a Malone Guitars spa day . It already played nicely but had a few stray buzzes, which I treated with a set up, some work polishing the string saddles, and a fingerboard scrub, oil, buff and body wax to finish.
Electrical repair for a cool bass guitar
I resolved an electrical problem on this interesting Hudson fretless bass. It was making the most horrific noise when it arrived at the workshop, due to some sketchy wiring (and that’s being kind) and more than one short circuit. It’s now all cleaned up, properly insulated and whisper quite.
