Before Gruhn Guitars puts out any of our fine instruments for sale, they go through our repair shop to get them ready to play. Some older instruments require extensive repairs and restoration, while others just need new strings and basic setup. But every guitar, mandolin and banjo has to meet the high standards of the repair crew before it's released for sale.
Have you ever seen the inside of a 1915 Gibson A-4 mandolin? Check out this rather extensive repair for an idea of what some instruments require to make them playable.
