Building a Beautiful Vintage Tele or Strat type
Growing up in the 60´s left a profound mark on the way I look at music and guitars.
I set out to recapture the spirit of that era and put that lost beauty into my guitars.
Imagine playing a guitar on stage where the audience is fascinated and can´t take it´s eyes off of it. "Wow, what is that" or "cool guitar"they say.
Or a guitar that you lovingly hold in your hands again and again just staring in loving wonder.
Building such a guitar is our goal. I will not take a good guitar and scrape off the paint and stick it in liquid nitrogen to make it look 50 years old. Only honest old-school craftsmanship - no BLING and no "fake" roadworn effect. Read on to see how I go about it.
