      Once Y’all Got through with that Foreign Talk’en bout that there Electrical mumbo jumbo ….

      Just kidding ….really enjoyed James. His love for his music and his playing and most of all Richard Hoover and the guitars he builds really shines through.

      I love his comment about getting beyond “Thinking” while playing……..Hell, I thought there was something wrong with me when I went all S.O.C. while playing on my guitars.

      Great job Richard & Tad….Thank You .

      James was an amazing person to talk to – and I was particularly struck by how well he understands his guitar, his set-up, his sound, and his style. It was exceptionally great to hear someone who wasn’t following the ” measure this, measure that, and these are the numbers you want or its unacceptable” train of thought.  I wish I had his DVD, but I may just download the video and try not to lose it – although his Stanford Engineering comes thru in his equipment setup and understanding, so I’ll see if I’m capable of grokking it –

      Every artist we’ve talked to has had so much to offer, and I’d love to do follow ups with all of them, but James has an almost unique ability to verbalize some of the areas that we, frequently, subconsciously appreciate about SCGC, the guitars, and the unique abilities Richard has to understand what a player could benefit from in a guitar –  we absolutely need to get him back again, preferably in person  –


      Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav
