Tanner Duckworth's J45. Before stain and after. Epoxy grain filler really brings out the color!!

This is a Silvertone 1365 Aristocrat, in for a neck reset and fret job, sweet!

New top on the Giannini!

Baby Martin neck is back on thanks to my shop buddy Timothy Bailey, I removed the neck and he shaved the heal to the correct angle. New frets, bone saddle and buffalo horn pins and she'll be ready!

This is a Giannini classical guitar built in 1977, the top will be replaced as well as a fret job. Seems hard to believe these babies were built with Brazilian rosewood, which is considered the holy grail of guitar woods. They really have a full and big sound, even though the top is laminated spruce, either way, cool guitar!

Tanner Duckworth brought this 60s j45 in. It was sand down to bare wood by a family member. I will stain this to look more like original color. Make a new bridge, frets and bone nut and saddle. A small job right!

This is a 1961 Martin O18 in for a neck reset, refret and crack repairs. Martin used to glue the pick guards on bare wood and then lacquer over it, problem, plastic pick guard and wood expand and contract differently which causes cracks.

Bailey Guitars added 11 new photos to the album: Todd Rheins Guitar Build — at Bailey and Sons HQ.

This is a guitar for my good friend Todd Rheins. The top is Western red cedar, the back and sides are walnut, the neck is Mahogany with laminated woods consisting of Mahogany and Maple. The fingerboard and bridge are made from Ebony that was salvaged from an old upright bass fingerboard.

The appointments:
• Snakewood for the rosette, end graft and the snake on the inlay which also has Spalted Maple and Pearl.
• Tortoise tuner buttons and bridge pins tie everything together....

This guitar is very light in weight and also comfortable to play due the Ebony arm bevel, and sounds great!

This guitar body is Cocobolo which is a very oily wood and hard to glue. The top is Port Orford Cedar, the appointments are made from snakewood, blackwood and abalone shell. Some of the most beautiful woods I have ever seen!
