Gallery: The Best Restored and Refinished Gear on Reverb

Vintage gear doesn't have to be all original to be great. In fact, new electronics in an old guitar or a fresh wrap on a classic snare can make the instruments much less expensive than they would be if they were collector-grade, all while looking sharp or playing like new.

In the case of more delicate electronics found in synths and recording gear, finding a piece that has already been worked on by a knowledgable tech might save you a lot of expense and trouble than if you had to restore the vintage gear yourself.

Below, we've compiled some of the best refinished, restored, or otherwise rejuvenated pieces of gear on Reverb. Click any of the images to visit an individual listing and learn more about the instrument.
