Need a good luthier in Sydney, damaged paint on my Rick

Postby (tamere) » Wed Mar 23, 2011 2:00 am

Hi

I was playing live Saturday and unfortunately on the tiny stage, the headstock of my Rickenbacker 360/12 hit a part of the wall.
A large chunk of paint came off the side of the headstock, near the tuning peg, leaving the wood exposed.

I checked the guitar and there doesn't seem to be any cracks or structural damage but I need this part of the guitar to be repainted/refinished.

The guitar is Jetglo and pretty much brand new. I am based in Sydney Australia and I need a good luthier, I would appreciate recommendations or referrals.

Thanks in advance!

Frank Grubisa is the person you need to speak to.. He understands the conversion varnish finish on Rickenbackers..

+1. Frank's the man - but as a result he's a very busy man...

Piers is also now available as he has decided to do his own thing again. Piers and Frank are two of Australia's finest.

That's good to know Brett - Frank acknowledges that he owes a lot of his Rickenknowledge to Piers.
