Reconstruction

The restoration of a 200 year old parlour guitar.

This guitar arrived in a very sorry state. The owners children had smashed it into many pieces. The reconstruction was painstaking but ultimately completely successful.

With a set of special low-tension strings it sounded delicately sweet. The jigsaw-like repairs were virtually invisible.

It was a privilege to work on such a historic instrument and return it to its’ former glory.
