This guitar is suffering from a condition known as “man-sat-on-guitaritis” and as a result the soundboard caved in. Distraught, distressed and ready to try any new fangled, yet to be proven medically, luthiery magic in order to restore his Maton EBG808L to its former glory. Luckily for Dave, Maton repairs are somewhat of a specialty for us.

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 arrived to us in a sorry state. At some point someone decided that they didn’t like the binding, so what do you do when you don’t like the binding on your 64 tele? Of course you sand it all off!
To fix this we routed a rebate into the top and bottom edge of the tele, filled out the rebate with pieces of old ash. Then re-routed a channel on top and bottom edge for the binding.
The customer wanted to see the original three tone magnifico sunburst. We sealed it and then thanks to Luke Kallquist and his fine skills with a spray gun, we had it.
Luckily the only atrocity was the the sanding. The components all worked fine and the guitar only needed a little work to bring her back to her former glory.
