Without wanting to make too bad a judgment on a different guitar, against the Reid Vaultback, a normal price industry guitar would seems as it were the handicraft of a ten-year old child. Extraordinary, unique, far away from any mainstream and artistically valuable. The Vaultback Halo of DAR is a masterpiece of contemporary lutherie – without ifs and buts. Its unbelievable value as a musical instrument competes with its artistic quality. I am honoured to have been allowed to play a guitar that differs so much from anything known and which leaves such an impression. Considering how rare these creations are, how innovative, refined and special, I want to predict that they will also play a prominent role in the future.

NAMM Interview

A few months ago, a film crew from NAMM, came all the way from California, US, to interview a load of people involved in the British music industry; including many inventors of various systems, instruments and devices used by every-day musicians, from amateur to professional, across the whole world. I had the pleasure of being asked to be interviewed and you can check out said interview by clicking More Information, below.

You can also browse the vast catalogue of interviews and films they have in their library. Enjoy!
