In regards to Restorations of vintage instruments. Upon inspection you will be notified of what repairs will be needed as well as the cost and approximate amount of time that the job will take. It is up to you, the client and owner of the instrument to decide if the guitar is worth restoring.

If you're getting ready or considering the instrument for resale you have to weigh the repair cost against the resale value. Beware of having any custom work, not original modifications and or non-professional repair work done to a collectible, original instrument.
