Lovely little soprano C.F.Martin & Co. uke before and after.
Wonderful old German Upright Bass before...
After restoration work completed.
Making a brazilian Rosewood bridge with added string compensation.
Unthinkable nowadays, but at the time adding a pickup through the side of a 1937 D-28 Martin Dreadnought was an upgrade.
Haoles patched, cleated and touched up ready for finish...
A local neighborhood lutherie hero of mine, Les Reitfors. Wonderfully personal, handmade instruments with island pride.
Ready to return to the collection!
A pleasure to meet this old fella! Perhaps the only all Koa, Kamaka tear drop mandolin.
I consider it an honor to be one of the Kamaka families preferred restoration experts.
