Bill Hibbets, a great guitar player who also happens to run Inner Knot records, a distribution company for established musicians, dropped this guitar off a few weeks ago and it was in need of some heavy guitar TLC. Not only was alot of the hardware missing or just hagged out, someone had done an amateur broken headstock repair.
I checked out and stabilized the headstock, upgraded the bridge, saddle and tuners, gave the frets a leveling and polishing, full setup, and to top it off refinished the area of the neck where the headstock damage was visible.
Here is Bill in the shop testing the guitar out with a set of 10 guage strings. This guitar has some miles on it, but its a definite player’s guitar; just enough dings, heavy body, and lots of tone.
