1960’s Royal Artist Bruno (Japan) – PRO RESTORATION

$ 475.00

SUMMARY: Rare, funky 60’s model made in Japan. This is a true hollow body with a single post at the bridge. When received, the guitar was non-functional with non-original and missing parts. It was then professionally restored to its current condition.

CONDITION: Overall condition is good to very good, considering its advanced age. The neck crack was expertly repaired and appears to have been done many years ago. It was a crack, not a clean break. Neck is straight. Has a few paint chips and light scratches throughout. See photos for detail.

WORK PERFORMED: Guitar was missing the switch tip, knobs, bridge, vibrato arm/spring, strap buttons and pickguard. The rosewood bridge base is original. Cheap, non-original tuners were replaced and all missing parts were installed, similar to the originals. Bad tone pot and capacitor were replaced. New bridge ground wire was installed. New bone nut and pickguard were fabricated. Metal corrosion was polished out. Also includes the following work: Professional fret job (set, level, crown, dress and mirror polish), fretboard cleaned/conditioned, switch, pots and output jack cleaned/lubed, nut filed/polished, new strings (D’Addario EXL120 9-42), complete setup (truss rod, action, intonation, pickup height). Guitar cleaned and lightly polished. All parts/electronics tested and fully functional.
