Roadrunner Guitars Interview 2 Custom Made Guitar Parts

 

 

The people who follow you know that you create custom-made guitar parts. Recently we saw on social networks that you have created a series of bridges from aluminium blocks, can you explain how you manage to adjust the tuning which seems much less simple than on traditional bridges?

 

Indeed for several years I have been creating custom-made guitar parts…

 

Initially I only produced and reproduced these parts for the unique purpose of restorations and repairs…

 

With time I decided to make bridges for my creations as well. Most of the time they are produced by hand and can also be adapted to existing instruments.

Concerning the bridges I reproduce the intonation line found on the adjustable bridges, once adjusted. I therefore produce bridges for wound or unwound G, knowing that the intonation of this string, depending on its “structure” changes at the intonation setting.

Les personnes qui te suivent savent que tu crées des pièces sur mesure. Récemment on a vu sur les réseaux sociaux que tu avais créé une série de chevalets à partir de bloc en aluminium, peux-tu expliquer comment arrives-tu à gérer le réglage de la justesse qui paraît bien moins simple que sur des chevalets traditionnels ?

 

En effet depuis plusieurs années je crée des pièces sur mesure…

 

Au départ je ne produisais et ne reproduisais ces pièces à des fins unique de restaurations et réparations…

 

Avec le temps j’ai décidé de fabriquer les chevalets aussi pour mes créations. La majeure partie du temps elles sont produites à la main et peuvent aussi s’adapter sur des instruments déjà existants.

Concernant les bridges je reproduis la ligne d’intonation qu’on retrouve sur les bridges réglables, une fois réglé. Je produis donc des bridges pour sol filé ou non sachant que l’intonation de cette corde, en fonction de sa « structure » change au réglage d’intonation.
