Musical Instrument Repair and Restoration

Swank's can restore worn or damaged musical instruments and repair damage caused by weather, time, or improper storage. We make every attempt to match the wood stock and grain of original woodwork, and we use exact matching stocks for inlay work.

Swank's can reproduce inlays, pick guards, peghead veneers, bindings, and even most woods for your vintage Gibson, Vega, Martin, Fairbanks, Fender or other fine guitar, banjo or mandolin. If you prefer to do the repair yourself Swank's offers pre-cut shell parts to replace missing or damaged inlay. You can also purchase patterns to repair original designs or add inlay to your instrument. Call for details.

Look thru Shell Blanks, Tools and Supplies, and Musical Instrument Repair to find the tools and materials you need for your repair.
