The EH Acoustic Guitars Pt 2: The Brody Guitar

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Here's another acoustic guitar made by EH in the 70's.

 

This guitar, marked with the brand "Brody" is another Japanese-made acoustic that EH had made for them in the 70's.  Mike Matthews has stated that Brody was his mother's maiden name.  Unlike the EH guitar seen in Part 1 , this one is of a lesser quality.  At one time I owned 2 of these and both were suffering from the bridge pulling up off the body.  I had both repaired (one had to have the bridge replaced) and constructed one original guitar from the 2.  The pearl dots on the bridge aren't original but were put there by the luthier to cover screws that are helping to keep the bridge in place.  The other guitar was given to my friend, guitarist Greg Lockhart.  Both are now playable and do play nicely, but not with the tone and feel of the better-made EH acoustic.
