For the last several months, we’ve been following Micah Bruce of Bruce Guitars as he builds a unique guitar that he’ll unveil at the 2023 Fretboard Summit. It’s an instrument based on the classic Harmony H-49 Stratotone shape, but it’s completely overhauled and like nothing that ever left the Harmony factory.
This week, we catch up with Micah and hear all about the new guitar, which he’s dubbed his Jayne model, after his daughter. We also hear about the other instruments he’s building for the showcase, his thoughts on relic’ing, what makes a great Tele, his ukulele output and so much more.
