We're big fans of luthier, Laurent Brondel, here at TME. His instruments are always innovative and surprising, without compromising tone or playability in favor of design. He's also a gear nerd like we are. After years of stockpiling vintage electric guitar parts, Brondel occasionally offers "New Vintage" instruments--bodies of his own design and construction, with the necks and electronic guts of old guitars. In our latest vlog, staffers Andy and Dan run down two such Brondels just into the shop.
