1955 Fender Restoration

This 1955 Non-Trem was fully Restored. This guitar survived an 8 year tour in the jungles of Viet Nam, and carried many deep battle scars. Both the maple neck and ash body, after sanding, had to be chemically treated to decontaminate the wood, and remove the stains from the wood, especially the fingerboard of the neck. The frets were replaced from our small left over stock of old original frets. The neck was then refinished and the body refinished to hide some of the battle scars. All the hardware had to be reconditioned. The controls, knobs, jack, and pickguard had to be replaced.
