* Best Pro Refret in LOS ANGELES for Vintage Gibson? *


Nov 3, 2007
Hey All -- looking to have an early '60's Gibson 335 refretted and want to do it right.

Who's the best here in L.A.? Anybody with firsthand experience? Cheers and many thanks in advance!

There are a number of great guys here in L.A. Personally, I've done a number of refrets over the last 40 years on vintage Gibson's. But, ask around. Try Westwood Music or Norik Renson, Pat Wilkin's Guitars(Toru is the guy).
