What do you do when a Holy Grail appears in your repair shop?
If it's the NCK Custom Shop, you share!
For your enjoyment, the first few photos of a legendary, 1958 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop, at the Custom Shop for a setup.



What do you do when your Les Paul needs to be MORE?
You bring it to the NCK Custom Shop!
This gorgeous Silverburst had the original controls and pickups carefully removed, and got a new lease on life with a stunning set of Wilde L90 twin blades.
1% matched pots, paper-in-oil tone caps, a custom
wiring harness and a crazy 6-way switching design completes the recipe for this tonal feast.
At the NCK Custom Shop, we love making cool things that sound GREAT!


We had another special guest in for a setup. Check out this all-original, Fender Broadcaster!
She was given our comprehensive treatment, which includes setting up the string action, intonation, pickup height and cleaning up the pots and switch. Frets are polished to a high luster and a fresh set of strings complete the job. 69 years young and ready to rock!


We recently replaced a stock graphite nut with a custom made hand carved bone nut. Bone gives the best tone, sustain and durability. This is one of the best upgrades you can make for your guitar!
