I was at the Fennario gig last night in Plymouth at the Guru Room (they rocked, BTW) and afterward had the chance to sit down with a gentleman from Becker and spend a couple of minutes playing (unamplified) two of the Becker guitars. I have to say that the woods, fit and finish, and craftsmanship were really great - flawless. The necks and action were really exceptionally nice, too. Anyone who is considering a custom guitar should really give these guys a close look. The quality was absolutely first rate.
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...
Thanks so much for bringing down a couple of guitars for us to check out last night! The only drag is that I couldn't plug the guitar into my system easily without rewiring my effects because of my OBEL (I need a Hub Bub!).
But our rhythm player Dan Sullivan, played one of them for a good chunk of the night. What an amazing piece of work! I can't wait to come down to the shop and try them out.
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us
Hey emoto and myoung! Thanks for the kind words. The gentleman who came to your show goes by Bagel, and from what I've gathered (i'm a newbie over here) he used to work with us and still is involved part-time as much as he can be. He's a great guy.
I was really scratching my head when I saw these posts, because I didn't think anyone from here was going to make it to the show (I'm 20 so anything at a bar is off-limits for me, and Dan and Ryan had commitments when I told them about it). I had no idea who could've come by until I remembered that Bagel had grabbed a few guitars yesterday for a show he was going to....he didn't even say who it was or where. What a crazy coincidence.
Anyway, I'm glad you guys got a chance to check out some guitars first-person! We've been checking out your band online since you originally told us about the gig, and you guys rock! We'd love for you guys to swing by the shop some time, please feel welcome to.
