REPAIR & RESTORATION GUITARS 2

Airline damage guitar repair by Nicole Alosinac Luthiery.

"Airlines may break guitars....


Nicole Alosinac fixes them! That's exactly what happened to my 30 year old hand-crafted EMI acoustic. My heart sank when I saw the state it was in after a flight. It looked like someone had taken a hatchet to the base and the back. I thought I'd lost an old friend. But Nicole said, "I can fix this, and it will look, play and sound just fine." Well, she was true to her word, and now I have my trusty old friend back with me. Thank you, Nicole!"

1949 Migma Aschado Restoration


This 1949 Migma Aschado had seen better days. A hole had been cut in the soundhole for a pick up, it was missing inlay, missing its pick guard, and back was being held on with tape. After extensive structural and cosmetic repair, this guitar was restored to its former glory and ready to make music.
Original Duolian Dobro Resonator repair by Nicole Alosinac Luthiery

Original Duolian Dobro Resonator Repair


This Dobro was hard to play with very high action and its owner wanted to play it guitar style. It needed a neck reset, some repairs to the structrual housing of the cone and a new nut to give it a new lease on life. It left the shop sounding and feeling good as new!
New Handmade Bridge for an Alvarez D70 by Nicole Alosinac Luthiery

New Handmade Bridge for an Alvarez D70


This Alvarez D70 came into the shop with the bridge lifting and cracked. To keep this guitar playing it needed a new bridge. This particular bridge is not run of the mill and needed to be made by hand to keep the original look design of the guitar. Wood selection, grain direction and precise work are needed for any bridge which sits in the heart of tone prodution on any guitar.
