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.

K&K Sound

Here's some old new news: As some of you will already know, I am a registered dealer in London for K&K Pickups. I first became interested in K&K many years ago as I sought-out a pickup system that could truly reflect the great effort I put into making my instruments - and that is exactly what they do! Quite simply, K&K are the best pickups I have ever heard, and they're pretty damn cool, too! My best seller is the fantastic Trinity Mini for guitar, which I have a current stock of, and I also have the Mandolin Twin Internal in stock. However, I can of course get you any of the systems from their huge range of pickups. Just get in touch with me through my contact page for details and pricing.
And you can check out K&K's phenomenal range by clicking the link to their website.
