Testimonials

I always wanted a double humbucker guitar with a trem. My guitar built by 42nd street earlier this year has just that. I was shown a few models which felt so comfortable and light with a great worn in feel to the necks. They helped  me through the design options and I chose to have my dream guitar finished in a copper colour with a matching headstock and white body binding. It looks totally stunning, the build and quality of the finish are fantastic and with both pickups coil split has all the sounds I could ever want. Great work!
