“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Fishman Matrix Infinity Acoustic Pickup

See photo of the Matrix Infinity pickup installed.

The Matrix Infinity, with switchable voicing to accommodate all guitar body sizes & performance situations, is great for instruments with a fair amount of lowmids and bottom end that need to cut through the mix (Flatpickers will appreciate the extra attack that helps them stand out from the band). The active, endpin mounted pre-amp is voiced to help control boominess in larger bodied guitars (dreadnought/jumbo size). The soundhole-mounted volume/tone rotary controls cut mids while boosting treble and bass. Overall length of 2.65" (67.3mm) fits most guitars with string spacings up to 2.5" (63.5mm). Uses one 9-volt battery (not included) and has an integrated LED low battery indicator. Professional installation recommended.
