  • We also do our own version of the Eric Johnson floating wire loom, this gives individual tone control to the neck on tone 1 and the middle on tone 2 with the bridge running no tone.

  • Pickups are hand made scatter wound by the very best UK and European winders, made to replicate the tones of the early years.

  • All hardware is professionally aged to match the look and feel of the finished guitar.

I want you to own a guitar that you just don't want to put back in its case and will work with you to achieve the sound and look that's personal to you.
