12617- Lachlan’s Abbey Road.

Monday, July 17th, 2017

A very special Abbey road, with Bigsby.

Lachlan built his own 40th birthday present over about 4 weeks.

12416- Vinci’s Goldmaster

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

For Vinci’s third Richards guitar, he wanted something a bit different- a Strat shaped mahogany body with a maple Radiomaster neck, with relic-ed hardware, a cream scratchplate and a black -over -sunburst paint job also suitably relic-ed…

The guitar was fitted with a pair of suitably distressed Brierley B90 single coil pickups.

12316-Lindsay’s Abbey Road

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Lindsay built this Abbey Road with me over a period of exactly two months, starting February 23, 2016 and the guitar was completed on April 23, 2016.

12215- James’s Abbey Road

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016

Started in September 2015, it’s taken James a few months to make his own Abbey Road guitar, under my instruction.

The end result is just wonderful, with no indication whatsoever that the maker is only 14 years old…

Because James really liked the sound produced by Errol’s Abbey Road- Serial Number 12015 – we’ve again fitted Tonerider Rebel p90 pickups rather than the usual Brierleys.

12115- David’s BYO Abbey Road.

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Identical to the first Abbey Road but painted red and fitted with Mick Brierley’s B90 pickups.

I must also acknowledge that David helped me refine both the design and production methods for this guitar…

12015- The first Abbey Road

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Based on the “fabled” 330 (pictured), the Abbey Road is an almost-faithful reconstruction but with some minor changes, notably a 25″ scale length, instead of 24 3/4″, the neck/body join is at the 19th fret rather than the 16th of the original and totally hollow construction with a sound post directly under the bridge.

The Abbey Road is of pressed laminate construction based on the Gibson 330/ Epiphone Casino profile and dimensions and uses locally sourced luan ply. The neck is mahogany and the fretboard is macassar ebony.

The body has three ply white/black/white binding but no binding to the neck, and a sunburst finish at the request of the purchaser.

The first Abbey Road is fitted with Tonerider Rebel 90 P90 pickups and has no scratch plate.

This guitar has been made for our friend Errol…

11915- prototype Abbey Road

Friday, January 29th, 2016

11815- Hayden’s BYO Radiomaster

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Hayden built his Radiomaster with me in the space of essentially six weeks.

The guitar is a Standard Radiomaster, with the usual timbers and features and has natural finish.

Hayden’s attention to detail has produced a first quality product…

11715- Myrtle Radiomaster

Friday, June 12th, 2015

This Radiomaster was made for James who built the myrtle acoustic with me in 2014 and he wanted a Radiomaster to match…

This guitar is made entirely from Tasmanian myrtle using the usual Radiomaster hardware and Bigsby and fitted with a pair of Mick Brierley’s B90 single coil pickups.

This guitar is the fifteenth Radiomaster made…

11615- Radiomaster Natural

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Another Radiomaster very similar to Vinci’s natural finish model with maple scratchplate and Bigsby but this time fitted with Mick Brierley’s B-90 single coil pickups.

Made for Kurt from Sydney
