We’ll start off the February news with a couple of little ‘uns and a
proud dad! Here’s young Jay, Amit and his new Bovey.
Amit’s a fine player, he came down from Birmingham to collect his Bovey, one of our range of travel
He asked Jack to inlay a Jay on the headstock (for obvious reasons!)
Check out Amit’s album on Bandcamp, we’ll hopefully get some video
featuring the new guitar soon.
Charlie McKeon borrowed my Lamorna
for a recording session with renowned producer John Wood whose credits
include John Martyn, Nick Drake and Sandy Denny. Charlie’s a talented young
artist from Liverpool, he’s going back to complete the album with John next
Trevor didn’t have far to come
from Sidmouth to pick up his 015 cutaway Lyn,
It has an Engelmann spruce top, rosewood back and sides, lacewood
binding with the custom 015 abalone purfling,
Bound headstock and gold tuners.
John bought his Lamorna from Coda in Stevenage and came all
the way down from Lincolnshire to have a K&K pickup fitted and to see
where his guitar was made! John’s in the folk band Between The Lines.
Andy picked up the Madagascan rosewood and Adirondack Lamorna we featured last month, it looks like
it was worth the wait!
We fitted the second K&K this month on this Weaver and made up a koa pickguard for this
partscaster for our old friend Richard James.
Last week we had a couple of visitors
down from London: Sam for a set up on his Taw and George to check out the progress of
his second Brook, an English walnut Tavy.src=
Down here we’ve managed to avoid the worst of the floods that
ravaged the rest of the country so here’s the annual photo of the snowdrops
in the orchard with the workshop in the background.
Here are the latest two for Project, top to bottom – a rosewood and
Sitka Lamorna and and rosewood and
Andy hand-made the brass tailpiece for this Fylde bouzouki for Norman,
another of our regular customers.
If you’re travelling to the Middle East don’t leave your guitar for
hours on the runway in the searing heat – this is what it did to the Hiscox
case, the guitar fared slightly better but will need a new top!
