Pete_Standing Buying British Instruments (25) RE: Buying British Instruments 28 Apr 08


Absolutely. When I was approaching a milestone birthday, I went in to a shop in Oxford that has a good range of Martins, Taylors, Fyldes and a few others. I was really disappointed with the sound and playability, bearing in mind the cost, compared to the Simon and Patrick that I had. In the end, I opted for a hand-made guitar by Nick Benjamin of Lewes. He studied my playing style and discussed tunings, tonal qualities and the sound that I wanted. OK I had to wait 10 months for the end result, but I had a guitar made-to-measure and included a case, pickup and parametric DI box.
