Recently I've received 1978 Martin for general maintenance. It needed substantial amount of work.
The frets were completely flat with no chance of recrowning. 

The nut was in pretty bad shape

One of the existing pickups needed replacement with some aesthetic touch-up

It needed a new saddle

So let the work begin 

First, I've started with fretwork. The fret wire needed radius put in to it.

Then, old frets were removed.

New frets were installed and levelled

New pickup was installed (L.R. Baggs Element active), inlay fixed.

Compensated bone saddle and nut were installed.

And this old Martin is almost new again, ready to entertain for years to come.
