THE NEW GUITAR
I am is delighted to be working with the wonderful French luthier Yves Mion at Mion Guitars in France.
Yves was my go to guy for all things guitar when I was over there. He completely rebuilt one of my guitars which had literally started to come apart at the seams as well as doing re-frets, wiring and general overhauls on my poor planks which take a beating from my overly acidic sweaty hands every night on tour.
You may have noticed the stunning flame top Strat I played pretty much non stop from July right through to the end of the year.
This was a one off, custom built to my spec by Yves himself and I’ve been enjoying playing it every night on tour.
Yves’ usual builds are usually more for the metal market with some very individual designs but he wanted to make me something I would want to play above all my other guitars – and he certainly did!
Imagine my surprise when I received a message from him last week asking what spec I would like for my next one!
So all you guitar geeks out there, watch this space for the 2020 model.
