New Guitar for Phil Campbell

Phil Campbell of Motorhead just got another guitar from me - they just finished up the UK part of the Motorizer 2009 tour and are now in Europe. I managed to get the guitar completed last Saturday morning (Thanks very much to Tim Mills at Bare Knuckle Pickups for getting the War Pig's to me on time). A mad dash to the London Hammersmith Apollo for sound check to deliver the guitar as well as a nice Green Flame Maple Series 2 for Mikkey Dee (Motorheads Drummer), a TC Ellis SG style and the last of my TC Ellis Hollowbody Les Paul style guitars for Dan and the crew - sorry Lemmy, that was the last one.

During the concert Paul, Lemmys Son made a guest appearance during "Killed by Death" and actually used Phils new guitar. I also met with the Guitar tech for the Damned - I am building him a Flying V.

The guitar for Phillip is one of my new "Debbie" style Les Pauls - solid mahogany body, Quilted Maple front, double binding, flame maple neck left natural, tree of life inlay, fully shielded with CTS Pots, Sprague Orange drops, Bare Knuckle "War Pig" pickups and the hardware in gold.

This is a very limited run of 12 instruments - available in black flame and tobacco sunburst flame. I did have another Cherry Sunburst that matched Phils guitar but Martin, a good customer of mine just grabbed it yesterday for his Xmas present to himself.

The guitars are available in 2 configurations - with standard hardware, pickups etc for £549 and a "Pro" version with upgraded electronics, CTS Pots, Sprague orange drop's, Bare Knuckle Pickups, fully shielded for £775.
