RICHELIEU
Instruments previously built in Bridgeport, CT between 1982 and 1984.
The Richelieu company was founded by a pair of musicians to produce good quality guitars in their regional Connecticut area. Between 1982 and 1984, Richelieu produced customized neck-through-body Spectre guitars, and customers could specify various pickups and finishes. It has been confirmed that the company produced seventy-five guitars and a few bass models. A second model, the Black Rock, had name badges but the model itself was never produced. Unfortunately, the company ran out of funds before the model design really took off. Serial numbers are impressed into the back of the headstock. Source: David J. Pavlick, Woodbury, CT.
