I recently purchased in July 2023 a beautiful Vince Hockey Guitar it is in a hand built 00 Martin style and seeing as he was a the main Martin man in the UK until retired there's no doubt about its background. On recommendation I took it to the Luthier/Repair guy Brian Hayward in Winchester who knows Vince and yes he's still around but now well retired. Brian Hayward applied his magic to my guitar (VH number 1130) and it sings with great sustain volume and separation across all strings. Its steel strings and narrower neck are a different style for me (mainly nylon Classical) so I'm just getting used to it.
Hope this helps keep up the Vince Hockey appreciation society.
