We appreciate his support and look forwardto some future videos with him playing his new Thompson.
The past 7 weeks have been a bit surrealwith not having Preston to reach out to, to share words of encouragement andlittle nuggets of information of things happening in the shop, showing himvideos of our artists or just playing him a tune.
We miss him dearly.
We are very proud that we can continuebuilding great sounding guitars under his name. The crew is tight, always communicating and feeling even more like afamily after the very sad loss of the person that helped create this team ofindividuals.
We are grateful for all the support we havefrom Preston’s wife Julie and daughter Piper, our investors, Preston’s businesspartner Dan, all the musicians that have reached out, our awesome clients andfabulous dealers!
Thank you all for your patience and your trust.
