  1. “Craig” Custom Lapsteel

    November 2, 2014

    DSCF7336“Craig” lap steel (with a difference)

    Made in the US of A, the unique feature here is the Pat Pending tilt adjustable neck. A real piece of history. We can tell you that this is a 50’s baby. The addition of a genuine Gretsch roller bridge and pick up gives amazing tone and just look at that Pin striping!

    Again the talented hand of Duane Brown (www.browncocustoms.com)

  2. The “Francis Rossi” Replica

    September 21, 2012

    A custom build project with a twist. After crafting a Rick Parffit replica guitar for Statoz Quo (a very good Status Quo tribute band. Check out their facebook here) they just had to have the matching Francis Rossi edition.

    So there we were faced with daunting task of creating another replica. I say daunting because the standards for these replica instruments are very high. Ask any Status Quo fan and they will tell you that the guitars in that band are a crucial element. To be taken seriously as a tribute band you must have the accurate axe.

    So we started from scratch

    This is a custom T-Style guitar we just finished for a customer. He wanted that awesome tele crunch but with much more midrange so we said “sure! leave it with us”. An all maple neck, nice ash body, b5 Bigsby, mini humbucker in the neck and a chrome plated P-90 in the bridge and of course a lovely vintage style nitro cellulose Butterscotch finish is what we came up with. Not bad eh?

    Sounding as nice as it looks, as promised it has a nice bitey top end with a good thick midrange crunch.

    Another proud creation of us fella’s here at the Guitar Repairers

    pictured as well is the tele a la natural. We thought it looked so good natural that we had to post it as well

    update!!!!

    We have since added a groovy tortoiseshell scratchplate to this beaut and Phil Barker, the proud owner has been nice enough to grant us a testimonial!

    John I just wanted to let you know what a great job, you, Luke and James did in making The Beast for me.  A beautiful instrument to play with such a wide dynamic range: from the extremely bold and crunchy, to gentle sweet jazz tones.  If I ever l play well enough to match the possibilities this guitar opens up I will be a happy man.
