WILLCUTT GUITARS TURNS 50
Willcutt Guitar Shop is marking 50 years
in business. Proprietor Bob Willcutt opened
his doors in Lexington, Kentucky, in 1968,
offering set-up, repair, and used instruments.
In '79, he moved to his present building and
became a dealer for Alvarez, Washburn, Mesa
Boogie, and Larrivee. In the mid '80s, he added
Martin and became one of the very first PRS
dealers. He has since added lines by Fender,
Music Man, Rickenbacker, Taylor, and others.
Willcutt himself still handles much
of the repair and set-up work.
"Even after 50 years, I still enjoy doing repairs as well as checking and doing
setups on nearly every guitar that goes
out," said Willcutt. "Some of the very best
instruments in the world come through
here, and I'm privileged to help find homes
for them. After a half-century, I'm still
learning, and having a blast doing it!"

Fender Custom Shop for both he and his
late brother, Stevie Ray.
"It's a trip, to say the least," Vaughan said.
"Fender came to Austin, and I dug up my
guitar and Stevie's guitar. They took them
apart, photographed every inch, every scratch,
