Congratulations to Gordon and Rob!
Having been lucky enough to play one I can only say they made the right choice. A lovely acoustic at a decent price. I'm sure it will go on from strength to strength as time goes on.
JHS must be very proud of this great instrument and very happy that they managed to get a Gordon Giltrap signature guitar.

Well, to be honest it just confirms what the rest of us have known for a long time!!! A great luthier, a great guitar, and a great player, and finally a great company that recognises that there is a commercial future in supporting excellence!

Well said Russ! Both great guys of outstanding ability, and very modest too!
