Brawley A-122

I snagged a mint one of these three years ago and it's turned out to be one of the nicest guitars I own.

The Brawley's are far better built and outfitted than most Fenders but they can usually be purchased for peanuts. If you see one, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. The pick-ups are a bit warm for some guys but if you don't like em, have em rewound and keep rocking. It'll be worth it!

Brawley guitars- very well made of quality materials but...

I tried to love my beautiful Brawley but it just doesnt sound very good. I've had it for 10 years. During that time it sat idle while I tinkered with partscasters. cheap parts and mediocre craftsmanhsip on my part but  always something interesting in the tone that I dont hear in the Brawley.

Ive strarted stripping the body, suspecting the amazing finish is snuffing out the life in the wood. Its flame maple on top of a swamp ash body. It should sound better. I put the neck on a partscaster and  even that seemed to marginilize the tonal character that the previous neck had supported.
