Cutting out the bodies for a swamp ash Stratocaster and a black limba Telecaster.
Making some curves in the semi-hollow horns. Both for looks, but mainly to get easy access to the lower frets.
Some still pictures of the current work.
Routing the trussrod channel in neck intended for the semi-hollow.
Doing some finish work on the backside of the semi-hollow I’m building
Got the sanding machine out today
The oscillating sander shouldn’t feel ignored either
Working on a walnut S-style neck
Still not got my CNC machine up and running … So Old-school neck building
How to Instal Frets in 31 second 😆
The most recent guitar in the shop – King Bee’s Stratocaster, getting a refinishing with Nitro Vintage White, has not just been sitting on a shelf, before coming to MadebyBruun. It’s been out in the world earning its makeover. We see it here in a couple of YouTube videos.
Notice the little nick on the body. It’s visible also in the before-shot on the makeover post.
Here it is being played by Texan Blues guitarist Alan Haynes in 2013
In this next clip the guitar is being played by Omar Dykes when Omar and the Howlers visited Mik Schacks TV program Public Service.

Back from vacation, I am going back to work on the mable neck for the Bubinga body
