Paul Wilczynski / Studio California / Rickenbacker Luthier

I'd be happy to work on your guitar or bass, whether it be a comprehensive restoration of your vintage instrument to factory condition, a refinish to your specifications, a set-up to your own playing style, or a major or minor repair!

Since my first professional luthiery project in May, 2005, I have built over 40 Rickenbacker acoustic guitars, performed hundreds of restorations, and completed about 300 refinishing jobs mostly on Rickenbackers and Fenders, for customers on every continent except Antarctica. The photos on display in the GALLERY represent about 20% of my total output since 2005.

My work has been featured in books and magazines, and my reputation among musicians and enthusiasts has led to commissions from knowledgeable professionals and musical legends, as well as walk-in and mailed-in business from amateurs from all walks of life.

I work to the highest standards, and can build, repair, refinish, or restore virtually any guitar. I can help you to simply spruce up your old favorite a bit, or I can build the instrument of your dreams.

I welcome the opportunity to quote on whatever project or projects that you may have in mind. Please enjoy some leisure time on this site--there are hundreds of photos of my work, and ideas that can provide both inspiration and reassurance that I'm the craftsman you've been seeking to work on your treasured Rickenbacker, Fender, or other fine guitar or bass.
