When it comes to relic guitars, you have a couple of options. You can either purchase a mass produced relic guitar from a company like Fenders, or you can have a relic guitar custom built for you by one of the several master builders out there. These people love creating unique relic guitars. Some wait until a client contacts them with specifics, but some are always working on a new relic guitar, even if they have no customer lined up. Bravewood Guitars is one of the second. Actually, Bravewood Guitars no longer takes customer orders.
Bravewood Guitars is owned by John Elliott, the man who makes each and every relic guitar Bravewood offers. At one point, John offered to build almost any guitar imaginable, but in recent years, he has begun only offering relic guitars for sale. However, his attention to detail and his craftsmanship are at the highest level. John is truly dedicated to making outstanding relic guitars. Because of this, he doesn’t offer (or have time) to do much else. While some guitar builders will build custom fingerboards or other parts for people, apply a relic finish to other guitars, and offer other services, John no longer does anything but build relic guitars. This means you’ll have to look elsewhere if you want any of these services or if you want to place an order for a specific type of relic guitar.
