We made this Calder for Mick in County Durham,
Here are a couple of shots of the top from different angles showing the 12/14 fret body join and the sound-port
And here’s the ebony faced headstock with Schaller GrandTune Hauser style tuners with Snakewood buttons.
Mick sent us this photo and wrote “Just to let you know the guitar arrived safely last week and I’m amazed at the quality and sound. I had a lesson recently from Steve Tilston and was so impressed with his guitar I ordered one when I got home. I can’t say enough about the quality of the sound, the guitar just rings with fantastic bass and treble – what an instrument! The quality and workmanship is absolutely top class. Thanks guys”
Frank will be coming over from Germany soon to pick up his new Abbey,
Here’s a close up.
Po had a Taw from us back in 2016, here’s his second Brook – a nylon strung Carey,
With a matching rosette and tie block,
Thai rosewood back and sides
And these elegant tuners with custom engravings of the Chinese and the Welsh dragon on either side.
This rosewood Weaver went up to Coda.
I forgot to photograph this one before it left the workshop so thanks to Lee from Project Music for this image of their latest Lamorna!
We’ve spent a while resetting the neck, making up a new bridge and generally renovating this Vega for a customer.
Andy fitted a K&K pickup on this Lyn.
We’re replacing a broken truss rod on this unusual Peter Kellett Strat with a rosewood neck, an aluminium body and this custom paint job.
See you next month!
