Recently added to the shop, our state of the art airflow spray booth is custom designed to overcome the challenges of spraying old school, unplasticized lacquer guitar finishes. It represents absolute state of the art for refinishing guitars. We precisely control humidity and temperature for vintage correct application that will naturally age and check like an old guitar. The result is not “like new” perfection, but a finish with the character and nuance of vintage Gibsons. Inside our spray booth, conditions are always perfect so we never have to wait and you get your guitar back sooner.
Color is critical, so our painter hand mixes pigments to match vintage guitars. With a state of the art lighting system we can see colors accurately as they go down on the guitar to make vintage correct sunbursts, goldtops, and custom colors. And we hand scrape the binding, just like Gibson did in the 50’s.
