Mad Guitars Interview 2 Tonewoods & Guitar Parts
In fact, I use the same network as most of the luthiers in France: Delta Bois, Kauffer.
But also sellers I find on E-Bay or local wood dealers.
I work with regular suppliers, but I’m trying to move towards “100% made in France”.
So I started to make my own parts like fixed bridges, and headless guitar mechanics systems.
Yes, I call upon industrialists who are able to manufacture my parts in large series.
Because the machines to make these types of parts cost a lot of money.
For custom models, most of the time, the customer already has in mind what he wants.
On the other hand, for my No-Mad models, the choice is made only on French made microphones : Crel , SP custom , Hepcat , Tornade MS.
Some customers sometimes have strange requests, but this is also the interest of this job.
When you call on a luthier it is because you have special needs!
I only use Cellulo Varnish on relic models.
My choice naturally went to PU because it is more resistant and has a faster drying time.
It is also more adapted to the musicians who play my guitars.
