Although never a mainstream brand, Hamer was formed in 1976 by Paul Hamer, Jol Dantzig and John Montgomery and is widely credited as being the pioneer of boutique guitar brands. Highly regarded by professional musicians it boasted a plethora of big names among its users including The Police, The Pretenders, Dire Straits and a host of others...Read Full Post »

I have always fancied a blue guitar, so i decided on making one. I went down the same line as #37 with a quilt top and stained it blue. Unfortunately once the top coat went on it turned out quite dark. I took it out on a very rare sunny day to have a look at the finish and bam! i dropped it. For all those who have been to my house you will know i dont have grass, only chuckies. I have now a dented and slightly scratched body. I fitted a Tonerider blues in the neck a Tone tider vintage in the ...Read Full Post »

Here is a copy i received today from one of the trade magazines. I thought it may be of interest to any investers out there? I would stay well clear of it myself.....
Fender has announced that it is to float on the US Stock Exchange in a $200m initial public offering.
"The Fender brand in particular is closely associated with the birth of rock 'n roll and has a strong legacy in music and in popular culture," the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission....Read Full Post »

Well I've been up to my neck for the past 3 months, along with being hounded by the "wife" for working too much, sometimes through the night when i couldnt sleep, and what have i got to show for it?
I made a 3/4 electric guitar (from parts) for my eldest grandson Owen, now aged 9 will start after the new year with proper guitar lessons. Hopefully when he grows up he can be just as bad a player as his Gramps. He said on Sunday it was the best day of his life !!! "aga...Read Full Post »

Kinellar Guitar Studios have become strip sponsors of Shedocksly Boys Junior team. It's always great to be part of a community and I hope together we will have a long partnership.

I have added some photos of the shirts etc. Unfortunately one player was off on holidays when the kits arrived so hopefully I will ge...Read Full Post »
