Before

  After

This guitar had been finished once before- over its original factory finish. We stripped all the finish off and found a nice clear piece of Alder underneath. The customer decided on trans-orange. We shot this guitar in nitrocellulose lacquer.

The top on this Gibson acoustic had seen better days. The customer requested that we build a replacement top with X bracing instead of the original ladder bracing. We shot a sunburst to match the original color scheme.

This '67 lefty Tele was a fun project. When this guitar came to me, the edges had been grossly rounded over and mis-shapen. Someone had routed the neck pickup cavity freehand to accommodate a larger pickup.

We plugged the pickup cavity and routed for the appropriate neck pickup, thickness-ed the body to sharpen up the edges, shot the body in a well-aged Olympic White, including light fastness and lacquer checking. This guitar looked the part.

These are just a few examples of the kinds of projects                     Bruton Guitars Handles daily.
