Below are the pictures of the repair and restoration of a Gibson Les Paul Guitar. This guitar had been previously repaired (at an unknown shop) for a broken headstock, but without any finish touch-up to that repair. The Les Paul Guitar had intermittent electrical problems, action, intonation, fret wear and tuning issues. The finish was dirty, dull, and had scratches. Plus the metal hardware had finish deterioration and corrosion. The guitar was completely tore-down for a proper repair and restoration.


The before pictures show the Gibson Les Paul's previously repaired broken headstock. Although the repair was solid, the owner felt the break-joint when playing.


These pictures show mostly the shielding of the electrical cavities. Also, the striped down body after cleaning but before polishing and shielding.


These photos show the restored Gibson Les Paul. The guitar is now in excellent condition and good for many years of playing. Proud Mary meets Jimmy Page for a Whole Lotta Love.
