I am happy to announce that I now have a small launch stock of the EGS (Ergonomic Guitar System) Fixed Bridge!

Come see me and my work live at Uppsala V International Guitar Festival next week!

It has a line-up of incredible artists like Leo Brouwer, Manuel Barrueco, Bireli Lagrene, Pierre Bensusan, and many others and offers master classes and workshops over the course of four days 16-19 October. Incredibly poor planning from myself means that I will only be able to attend on Thursday, but for the rest of you, it should be a great...
