Testimonials

Dear Angela, Just thought I'd let you know that I'm really enjoying the guitar and very happy with how it plays and sounds. I used it in band rehearsal for the first time last night and it impressed everyone! My rhythm guitarist played it for an hour after he broke a string on his USA Standard Tele and reckoned it is the best guitar he has ever played! Might be another customer soon!!
