From Laurent Brondel - 

"I build string instruments, mainly steel-string and electric guitars. I aim to build a tasteful instrument of outstanding tone and classic appearance, with maximum playability and perfect tonal balance.

I was born in Paris, France. As far as I can remember my life has been devoted to music. 18 years of my life were spent living as a professional musician. I also taught guitar, privately and in classes, for over 10 years. In the early 1990s I started working as a sound engineer and electronic musician, producing and mixing music for a handful of artists along my own. I moved to New-York City in 1999, and since 2003 I reside and build guitars in the western mountains of Maine.”

What's a Honeycaster?

"Honeycasters are interpretations of the great Fender® designs of the 1950's and 1960's. Or perhaps they are the Fenders® that never were!

For each guitar I set a specific period and every detail (peghead transition curve, neck profile, roundovers, belly and arm cuts etc.) is worked out to make a thoughtful, realistic and logical interpretation.

Honeycasters are available in single cutaway, double cutaway and offset body shapes, with one, two or three pickups. 

Bodies & necks are made by me in my shop, out of the highest quality tonewoods. I apply the same standards of excellence and finish as with my acoustic instruments.

Any pickup(s) configuration, custom pickguard, electronics & hardware are possible. Neck profiles can be highly personalised. Scale is the traditioal 25.5" with a 12" radius for easy fretting and bending. Shorter 24" and 22.5", and different fretboard radiuses are possible." - Laurent Brondel
