No wonder no-one can find us!
We sent this little bubinga Holly up to our friend Richard in Market Harborough, our shortest scale six string.
He kindly sent us a copy of his latest book –
And wrote ‘To help customers judge the size of this lovely new instrument you can inform them that it is approximately the length of one Russian Blue kitten. Please note – kitten is not at full extension and objected to being photographed without prior consultation’!
I’ll add another, nearly festive, size comparison – The Holly and The Tavy.
This is Richard from Bristol’s third Brook, an abalone and pearl decorated Lyn
With bubinga back and sides and a figured mahogany laminated neck. Succinctly and to the point Richard wrote ‘Thanks for the Lyn – outstanding’!
Pete came over with the Taw we made for him earlier in the year to pick up an inlay he’d commissioned from Jack of his last black lab.. here it is resting on his guitar.
Nearly every customer featured this month has more than one Brook – so to add to the roster this 613 mm, short scale, walnut Creedy went up to Keith in Greenwich, his second of our guitars!
We’ve still more repairs here than we’d really like, Andy sorted out a tricky problem with the wiring on this Gibson bass
And repaired yet another Les Paul headstock break. The customer was delighted with the result.
Season’s Greetings to everyone
And Best Wishes for the New Year. We’ll be away from the workshop for our winter break until the 5th January.
