Red, White & Bullets

"Jaws hit the floor upon seeing it, a smile of satisfaction arises upon playing it, and a wide grin ensues on sampling its range of 'proper' vintage tones.  Don't mistake these instruments for some sort of novelty - this is a genuine piece of guitar craft..."  

 

Neville Marten,
The Guitarist Magazine
September 2016
