Paul Wilczynski / Studio California / Rickenbacker Luthier

2018 marks my 15th year as a specialist in the restoration, refinishing, and reconstruction of Rickenbacker instruments of all vintages.

Since my first involvement with Rickenbackers in 2003, I have built over 40 Rickenbacker acoustic guitars, performed hundreds of restorations, and completed over 600 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 2003.

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, Gibson, Martin or other fine guitar or bass, whether it be acoustic or electric, new or old.
