Here is an email from a satisfied customer:

Man, that guitar cleaned up very nicely, and even with the old flat strings it sounded great. I removed them and polished the fretboard and body; what a beautiful guitar! I’m going to restring it tonight and let it rip…I know it’ll sound even better. Thanks for being ‘straight up’ and not another BSer like most of the Craig’s List trollers. I’ll definitely recommend your shop to everyone else I know, and you’ll see me again. Thanks man,  Ed
