Jimi HendrAXXE

Here is a video of Herm playing his SharpenYourAxxe guitar. He is at the school of rock playing some Jimi Hendricks. This is also his first time playing in front of people or his first gig. I have never played on stage before. I would have been a total fruit loop in the head if it was me doing that for the first time in front of a crowd. Great job Herm. You played great. Check out the awesome tone he had for the song.

SYA meets Vanderbilly!



David O is the head moderator at Vanderbilly. I made him a Custom SYA Stratocaster to his specification
s a while ago. He was gracous enough to make this video testimony for me about his SYA guitar. The man spends alot of his personal time keeping Vanderbilly a great place for guitar players to go to online. He was really humbled by this gift I gave him. Enjoy it David. You earned it man!!.

Check it out!!!.

SYA Custom Build Travels to Canada



A couple of members of Vanderbilly contacted me before last Christmas about something they wanted to do for a friend. So what I ended up doing was building a guitar for them to give Don as a present. I was glad to be part of it. Don even wrote me a song about SYA. How cool was that?

Here is what Don had to say about his build:

To my American Friend,

Gary and a few other members at Vanderbilly.com surprised me this Xmas with a new SYA guitar. I was humbled to say the least. I live in Eastern Ontario, Canada. The guitar which traveled hundreds of miles was in tune when I first played it.

Ever since its still only needs a few tweaks. He put a humbucker pickup in the bridge and it just sounds killer. I own a Fender Telecaster. Given the choice of which hat I would wear...a Fender or a SYA...hands down SYA!! I can truly say that Gary is a craftsman. Best guitar I ever owned.

Build Of The Month:
GMC Tele

picThis guitar is called the GMC Tele. Mike (sixstring63 from Vanderbilly) made some custom pick ups for it, Chris V (Vanderbilly moderator) made and painted the body and they sent me the parts and I put it together. We raffled it off on Vanderbilly and raised almost $2500 for the Jimmy fund for cancer research.

Here is what Gary had to say about his build:

" This is a beautiful guitar. It was custom built for a charity event by Gary and two other fine men. Plays great and looks great. I received this from Gary, after he assembled it and set up the guitar. Nice low action, and nicely dressed frets." Came out of the case "ready to use".

SYA Custom Build:
Raffelpalozza



Mike D from Canada won his SYA guitar in a raffle on Vanderbilly. Here is what he has to say about his SYA guitar.

Here is what Mike had to say about his build:
Hi Gary,

I have just opened this SYA Stratocaster after its long journey north and it is amazing. Beyond amazing actually. The quality of the finish and colour on the body is beautiful.

I have never seen a Strat like that. The paint is almost translucent so you can see wood grain through it. The fit, finish and setup are perfect. You can tell a lot of time and attention to detail were put into this when you built it Gary.

It is probably the first guitar I've gotten that just felt right straight out of the box. Nothing needs to be tweaked at all and it is hands down the easiest guitar i have ever played.
 
Thanks Again,

Mike



This is Jody who lives in the UK. I built this Telecaster for him. Here is what he had to say about his SYA guitar.
 

I own an SYA Telecaster guitar made for me by Gary, and it's the guitar I always dreamed of. For this reason I named her 'Lucy', after the girl everybody fancied in school. Well, now she's mine!!

She plays like a dream, with a setup that makes me want to tweak all my other guitars to play like this one. Built to last and beautiful, if you get the oppurtunity to play or own an SYA guitar, take it!!

Thanks Gary!!'

Here is a video of Jody playing a cover of Dire Straights "Sultans of Swing". The singer is Martin who is a friend of Jody's and a member of Vanderbilly too!
