1960 Ramirez Refurbish Help

Recommended Posts

My friend from my church gave me his Brazilian Rosewood Ramirez from 1960.

He bought this new when he was a young Beatnik in the 60's.

He asked me to see what I could do about the damage.

The bridge broke and lifted up in many places.

The fingerboard has a chuck missing.

I took it to a local classical shop in Los Angeles called Candela's and the guy just about wet himself over this guitar.

He said for him to restore it; to refinish and fix the cracks and splits, would be about $1,000-$1,200.

There're giving me a two month time frame for the work.

The deal is, my friend doesn't care how it's done. He's 78 and just wants his guitar no matter how it looks.

It's a shame not to do it right.

I'd like some more opinions.

Does anyone know of a good reapir shop in Los Angeles that works on vintage classics?

I offered to pay for this for my friend. He won't know I am though. He'll get mad if he finds out.
