Mark Robinson came down to pick up this rather spectacular sinker redwood Tavy,
Mark asked Jack to inlay maple leaves along the fingerboard
Extending to the headstock.
Mike will be coming down shortly to pick up this Tavy to add to his Brook collection,
It has a Celtic theme with rosette,
Fingerboard and headstock inlays.
We sent this Weaver up to Steve in Hertfordshire earlier in the month, he got in touch to tell us “It plays like a dream” and sent us this photo taken in his back garden the other day – it looks like his Weaver has a new admirer!
Prompted for a wacky photo Ivan obliged and we thoroughly approve! Ivan is so pleased with his new Torridge he’s planning on coming down to see us and ordering a custom Lamorna next.
We sent this Tasmanian blackwood Taw off to Neil in Norfolk
And this rosewood Lyn went off to Mak’s shop in London.
Walking past the latest batch of guitars Jack is putting together I thought this was worth a photo!
Matt wanted the neck on his Custom Shop Strat reshaped
And Richard wanted the same on his Ibanez.
Bendigo brought down a couple of nice Martins for us to work on – a 1947 00-18 for some minor work on the bridge and setting up. Also this 1927 0-18K for a neck reset. This was one of the late Michael Chapman’s collection that came up for sale recently.
He also gave us this Guild 12 string as a project if we could find the time to fit it in – anyone fancy ‘a project’?
The side of the bass we finished a few months ago has suffered rather a nasty trauma, Andy has got it back together, is refinishing it and we’re happy to say it’ll have no lasting damage.
Andy also refinished the top of this Gibson J-50 and made a new bone nut and saddle for it.
Nice photo here of Tilly and Mike with his nylon strung Lyn at the Tavistock Acoustic Cafe, Mike said he had lots of positive comments about how good the guitar sounded!
To round off the October News Richard and Deb sent us this photo of Richard’s Bovey in an appropriate Halloween setting!
More news next month!
