Testimonials

Hi Angela,

The body has arrived, it looks exactly as I hoped, so many thanks.

I have the whole guitar assembled now and it sounds superb. The guitar is very snappy, resonant and 'alive' - definitely what I was looking for.

I may very well be in touch next year to get a swamp ash telecaster body made, as the results I achieved on this strat have been superb.
