One of the problems of the lockdown is that our customers can’t come down and pick up their guitars. This nylon strung 12 fret cutaway Taw is for John from Somerset who has several other Brooks.
The top is Sitka spruce,
The back and sides are Crelicam ebony with bubinga binding,
Along with Schaller GrandTune machines with ebony buttons and black barrels. Hope to get a photo of John with the guitar for next month’s news.
Dev has now got his Lamorna and send us these stunning photos taken in the beautiful Ambapur stepwell!
This ovangkol and European spruce Little Silver and is about to be sent to Keith in London,
It has a 595 mm scale, it’s strung as a Terz and is tuned G to G.
This mahogany Lyn and rosewood Taw have just gone up to Coda
And these two, a rosewood Torridge and Lamorna, are off to Project this week.
This fine piece of English walnut has just been chosen by a customer for a Taw.
You may remember – this red gum Taw had been left outside in its case on a Middle Eastern airfield by airline staff for a considerable amount of time. The Hiscox case took the brunt of the excessive heat and we managed to get away with just re-topping the guitar.
This month brought in a couple of headstock repairs: This Gordon Smith
And a rather nice Heritage.
This Torridge has had a rather nasty knock, we’ll see what we can do to get it back on the road again.
Unless you’re lucky enough to live in Cornwall or the Isle of Wight you’re going to still be under a fairly strict form of lockdown like us. Let’s all be patient, stay safe, then hopefully next year things will return to a form of normality!
