Bob and Hugh

The Hallmark Johnny Ramone Model has been given a great review from Premier Guitar! Read the review here!


We had a super event at NAMM 2011 this year! Attendance was up and we met some really great players! We met up with Hugh McDonald among others. Hugh is currently on tour with Bon Jovi rocking arenas around the world, and has played with everyone from Ringo Starr to Lita Ford. We are now building a bass for Hugh that will be a production model as well for those of you (and you know who you are) that have been e-mailing us about a 60 Custom bass. The time has almost arrived!
