  1. 1977 Fender Telecaster Deluxe

    March 13, 2014

    DSCF5283A shiny, lovely 1977 Fender Telecaster Deluxe. What can we say that hasn’t been said about this little classic?

    The fat, warm tone of the wide range humbuckers are offset by the one piece maple neck and northern ash body. This guitar is original in every way real stunner with street cred to burn.

    $4050

     

     


  2. The “Francis Rossi” Replica

    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

    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.
