JIMI ANDERSON-Ttela Interview

Hurricane Isaac brought more pissing and moaning to us than anything else. Still, the weather sucked for doing anything really productive.

Lance from L.A. Pussycat put together a little jam using a Spawn Guitars SS-87FR to blow the Hurricane off course- The power.

Check out the vid and share it if you dig it-

Just kidding- I thought that would get your attention though.

This is Shane from Mercia. He’s one sexy dude…. We’re working with him on his custom guitar, and preparing him for his entrance into the BROOD.

Our good friend and Spawn Guitars Artist D-Rock Deeds is raising money for his upcoming tour of beautiful Germany.  We are looking for individual sponsors to help out.  We know times are tough- no doubt- so we want to make sure you get something in return for your investment.

Could you at least spare a dollar ? If everyone of D-Rock and Spawn Guitars friends gave just $1.00 he would be well on his way.

So here’s a breakdown of what of you will receive for your donation(s)

$1.00 – Credit/Special Thanks on the Spawn Guitars website as well both Spawn Guitars and D-Rocks social media pages.

$5.00 – All of the above plus a Spawn Guitars pick pack with one pick signed by D-Rock.

$10.00- All of the above plus a Spawn Guitars Skull necklace.

$15.00 – All of the above plus a “special thanks” signed picture of D-Rock

$25.00 – All of the above plus a Spawn Guitars/D-Rock Deeds T-shirt.

We know those aren’t huge amounts.. we want to make it easy for you to help out. Remember any and all sponsorship amounts are acceptable and greatly appreciated.

BUT- if you really want some bang for the buck-

$1,000 – All of the above + A replica of D-Rocks Reaper Prototype #1 Signed by the man himself. You can check out pictures here: Reaper Prototype #1

If you’re on the East Coast D-Rock will personally deliver the guitar to you.

Spawn Guitars will be overseeing the donation account (although the account will say Saint Among Us) so if you have any questions please email us at: info@spawnguitars.com

Maybe- maybe not.

Read up on the infamous Gibson lawsuit here : Gibson Guitars Settles .  Although they settled in the end- it’s still unnerving that any instrument or instrument manufacturer could come under certain scrutiny under these laws. If ,in fact,  many of these  woods can not be exported/imported in raw form- how will U.S guitar manufacturers continue building “Made In/Built In” U.S.A instruments based on the current Federal Trade Commission Made in U.S.A  guidelines since many of the tone woods and other guitar manufacturing/building raw materials don’t originate here ?

I’m not a lawyer or a lawmaker- I only understand it as it is written and explained by those who are, and it seems they don’t even understand it, or really care to understand it.  Feel free to chime in- Just keep it clean and professional.

 

This is a great article on Guitar World’s site: Eight Steps to Becoming a Legendary Hair Metal Guitarist.

It is funny- mainly because it’s true. My favorite is “every guitar headstock must look like a deadly weapon”….. Read it for yourself.
