Other: "The base of my Wurlitzer harp was quite battered after years
of gigging and before I knew about base covers. Eric not only regilded
it, but first had to restore carved areas where the wood had been
abraded. He carefully restored the gold with gesso and other layers,
and successfully matched the gold color to the less brilliant 1927
original on the rest of the harp." Joyce Rice, satisfied customer.
