Ibanez Artist Restoration

HardwareA very good customer of mine has a 1970’s Ibanez Artist guitar. His father bought it for him brand new many years ago and has consistently played it for almost 4 decades. It has seen many gigs and sessions but was well taken care of. The body is in excellent condition. The gold hardware however was worn which bothered the owner. All the gold hardware was removed and re-plated. I then sprayed 6 coats of lacquer with an airbrush to protect the new gold plating. The guitar also needs to be re-fretted because the frets were leveled & dressed so many times there wasn’t much fret height left. I am eager to get this guitar back together and see how it will play. Stay tuned….
