Gibson 1962 ES330 Stainless Steel Refret

You don’t see many of these and it’s an honor to refret one!
(Coming soon, got to get the pics together)

Anar Isayev played to the House of Representitives in Washington, DC. Anar was traveling at the request of the President of Azerbaijan. He is playing a custom guitar from Aperio Guitar!

Anar was kind enough to make this video demo of the guitar we built to his specs. I must say it sounds good in his hands. Thanks Anar.

You did a FANTASTIC JOB! We got the Martin D18 out, tuned it up, and it sounds GREAT! The attention to detail – especially considering the stainless steel aspect – is amazing. They look good enough to be factory – actually I take that back: better than factory, since they are bigger and shinier and nicer than factory, and sound just great.

The D18 is now seeing some revised interest in our home. Thanks a ton! G.
