Without wanting to make too bad a judgment on a different guitar, against the Reid Vaultback, a normal price industry guitar would seems as it were the handicraft of a ten-year old child. Extraordinary, unique, far away from any mainstream and artistically valuable. The Vaultback Halo of DAR is a masterpiece of contemporary lutherie – without ifs and buts. Its unbelievable value as a musical instrument competes with its artistic quality. I am honoured to have been allowed to play a guitar that differs so much from anything known and which leaves such an impression. Considering how rare these creations are, how innovative, refined and special, I want to predict that they will also play a prominent role in the future.

If you've found yourself reading this you're probably very upset with yourself, or somebody else for that matter?! But, if it's any consolation there is solace in the fact that it can and does happen to most of us guitar players at some point in our lives. And more often than not the damage looks more drastic than it actually is. And you've found yourself in the best place to get it fixed.  David is a multi award winning guitar maker with a strong international reputation for excellence. 


If your guitar is valuable, sentimentally or in a monetary sense, then re-finishing shall be required to get the best job done. This can be a little expensive, and I’m afraid there are just way too many variables, and way too many different kinds of guitar to give an idea of cost for these sorts of repairs. So the best thing to do is make an appointment for David to view your guitar, and then he can give you his best advise, and give you a quote. Sending images of the break can help, but the damage shall still have to be viewed in person to give an accurate, solid price.

Some lesser expensive guitars can be repaired relatively cheaply if it is a clean break, and you aren't so worried about aesthetics.

Please click the link below to send a contact form or to call to make an appointment. In the meantime, the best initial advice David can give is: Let the tension off of the strings immediately, keep any splinters that fall off, no matter how insignificant they may seem and don't let it get damaged any further by trying to bend it back in place, or over handling it. Put it in its case or gig bag a.s.a.p. It is best for David to handle it as it was when the accident occurred.
