Brondel Honeycaster 1961 Stratocaster Surf Green



This is a New Vintage project, the restoration of a 1961 Stratocaster by Luthier Laurent Brondel. Honeycaster is Brondel's electric guitar lineup based on the Pre-CBS Fender.

The handcrafted parts with the era-correct profiles highlight the best features of an early 60 Strats, and elevating them with modern playability is a plus. Ron Ellis gives it the tone that is sought after! 

The finest examples of a luthier-built electric guitar of our day!
