Well……things have developed rapidly since last month’s admonitions
to wash our hands thoroughly. We started with notices asking people not to
visit if they showed any symptoms of the virus to ‘Strictly No Visitors’ –
then the government’s total lockdown for non-essential businesses. It goes
without saying that the workshop is closed during the current crisis. We’d
like to apologise to all of our customers, in particular those who’ve
ordered and are going to have to wait a little longer for their new
guitars: Louise, Adam, George, Bill, Tulley, Kev, Dev, Jack and also of
course Coda, Project and Intersound.
Andy’s taking care of the Facebook page and I’ve set up office at home
to keep on top of the email and the website.
So – not much to show you this month but Andy managed to deliver a
rosewood Torridge and Taw to Project Music in Exeter.
We set up this Les Paul, re-glued the bridge and repaired the finish on
the Santa Cruz and did a neck re-set on this eighteen year old Torridge that had been exposed to some
humidity issues sometime in its life.
Caspar was evidentially pleased with Andy’s set-up on his vintage
Chris bought his Lyn from Coda
Music, he sent us this photo taken in his hometown of Rye, he said
“The Lyn’s great, it just falls under my fingers, I love the feel of
the 12 fret set-up and the action is really good!”.
I took the opportunity before our
enforced break to take a few photos of the empty workshop.
I’m afraid next month, for the first time in the twenty years we’ve
been keeping you up to date with our latest news, we’re going to be rather
short of news items so – all you self-isolators out there – how about some
photos of yourselves with your Brooks
to fill out the April news? The wackiest photo wins a set of Elixirs!
We realise that a large proportion of our customers, like us, are
likely to fall into the high risk category so we wish everyone well,
Stay in, stay safe and keep in touch.
