I play the guitar every day, I honestly do, and it’s been my writing and performing companion since I took ownership. The guitar has a depth of tone frequently remarked on when I play publicly, and it’s such a comfortable design it feels ‘right’ all the time. I simply would never be without it. You know when you’ve found ‘the one’
Sam is a great percussive guitarist and wanted a guitar which would sound at least as good as his old Martin and also stand up to being played as a drum. I made him a mahogany and sitka spruce model with some helpful advice from luthiers Nick Benjamin and Richard Osborne. I fitted a K&K Trinity system to allow him to pick up both the notes of the strings and the percussive beats. You can listen to this guitar being played by Sam at the Briggstock Festival in the video below.
