Here is the finished 1970’s Ibanez Artist I’ve been working on for a few weeks now. The most time consuming part was the hardware out being re-plated and then me having to lacquer all the hardware with an airbrush. That took about 4-5 weeks. I refretted the guitar and the owner wanted the stock pickups replaced. The original pickups were put away for safe keeping. In the end the guitar plays and sounds fantastic! I am looking forward to the owner picking it up and seeing it all back together with the newly re-plated hardware. These are cool guitars!
