The Beermaster Project

Paying homage to two of my favourite things, Fender blonde piggyback amps and…BEER!!! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Beermaster! Proof positive that lacquer fumes can cause brain damage!

1961 Fender Jazz Bass – Surf Green

Here’s a surf green J bass body that we did for John Bergen. John had all the parts for a 1961 bass except for the body. He got a great repro body done up and we aged the body to match his original finish neck. Looking good John!

Sherwood Green Telecaster Restoration

Here is a cool tele we restored for all around good egg Steve Spaulding. This guitar had some serious issues, someone one had turned it into a double cutaway and the headstock finish was gone.After the body was restored with aged ash, Steve decided to have some fun and picked Sherwood green over desert sand […]

Gretsch White Falcon

Burgundy Mist Fender Custom Shop J-Bass

This is another Fender custom shop J bass that we redid in Burgundy Mist over period correct Desert Sand primer. This one is a real looker!
