Redwood Bridge

1pc Redwood Body Salvaged from a bridge built in 1925 in Willits California.  This wood was a tree for about 1,000 years, a Bridge for 100 years and now a guitar!

The Pickguard is cut for TV Jones "Universal Mount" Pickups.  Shown with P-90s but Filtertron and other models drop right in.

As Shown $3,500  Other Configurations Available on Request.  

You may have seen reference to "The Smugglers Bridge Folsom". Wood from this bridge has been exhausted and I'm now using bridge wood from the same stash used for the Mendocino Junior.


The Folsom.  Designed to be a familiar yet distinctive statement both visually and sonically. Build around a Tele bridge pickup and Firebird neck pickup, The Folsom creates classic workhorse tones with the feel of a handmade played-in instrument. The guitar is available in several color and hardware options including a string thru Tele bridge, a Tone Pros bridge with a Bigsby or the Grez stainless steel trapeze tailpiece.  At just under 7lbs The Folsom has a stout feel without being unnecessarily heavy.
