To kick off the opening of our new Liverpool warehouse, I spend more than half of November in UK and Europe. We started in London, headed to Denmark Street to visit a couple of our dealers there – Macari’s Music and WUNJO Guitars – two of London’s finest guitar shops. Our 4-day road trip pushed on to visit existing and perspective dealers in London, Brighton, Southampton and in Thame – just east of Oxford – we visited new Eastwood Dealer VINTAGE and MODERN Guitars who were preparing for their grand opening.
It’s always dangerous to deal in stereotypes. Nevertheless, there’s often a grain of truth lurking behind them. Take guitars (what else?) from the ‘60s. Often it only takes a glance to sus where a guitar came from. Look at a Japanese electric guitar and you won’t mistake it for anything else. Or move to Europe. You’d almost never confuse a German guitar—full of engineering bells and whistles—for an Italian one (loaded with style), or vice versa. Take this c. 1965 Juliett Delux guitar.
The nice thing about a blog is that I can write about anything that is on my mind. This week has nothing to do with guitars. I’ve just returned from being in Europe for 3 weeks – 1st week at Messe, then the next two with my wife Kay and 9-year-old son Troy in Southern Spain and a couple of days in Paris. Yes, a well deserved Holiday.
