Hi guys,

here is my first electric build being played in anger by ‘Dave Davis’ AKA West End Star George from Rushden, at the Rushfest Sunny Afternoon cast reunion. It sounded great, he played a blinder and yes, I had a lump in my throat seeing him enjoy my guitar so much and it sound so good. Sorry about the break in the first song, I pressed the wrong button!

Cheers guys

Darren

And thanks to all the forum members whip gave advice along the way, especially on pups and wiring - not my natural habitat so very grateful for your input. Cheers guys, what an amazing support group we have here!

Cheers

Sounds good @darrenking. I've never heard my guitar played by someone that can actually play.

@darrenking.

Sounds great Darren. You must have done a good wiring job to get that sound. 👍⚡

@darrenking Sound great Darren, I’m glad you got a warm feeling from this experience. I have yet to see one of my guitars get played in anger by the customer, but it is coming and I’m sure I will feel the same. You are right, we have a great group of people here and long may it continue. 
On to the next project.

First artist endorsement then @darrenking?

Big congrats.

 

Was it a good day?  (I completely forgot, though it would have been a solo trip, and a very sober day too!)
