Ethos

Curated by James P Gascoigne, the 'Home of Tone' is a humble collection of guitars, parts & accessories that have been individually selected to be represented here for their quality, design and the brand in question's shared passion for the guitar.

I certainly don't consider the Home of Tone as re-writing the book on guitar store approach, but instead see this venture as writing my own book about what I love about the guitar; the instrument that has provided inspiration in numerous facets of my life from an early age.

All I hope, is that you find the Home of Tone a place share your passion for guitars with me. The stores name is a bit of fun ultimately, but the intention is from the heart and since the humble beginnings in 2015 it seems there are so many of you that can relate to the approach. For that, the least I can say is Thank You.

Home of Tone at The Guitar Show 2020!

Home of Tone at The Guitar Show 2020!

I'll be making the short trip over to Birmingham, for the 5th year in a row for The Guitar Show! It's on this Saturday 29th Feb, and Sunday 1st March at New Bingley Hall in Birmingham. I'll be in my usual space (Stand E01 over by the bar near the main entrance to the main hall), and will have all of my brands represented including Millimetric Instruments, Jennings Guitars, McNelly Pickups, Ground Control Audio pedals, Yellowcake Pedals, Mother Mary Co Straps, Diamond Bottlenecks Slides, Gabriel Tenorio String Co, Signature Series wiring harnesses, Dunlop, Elixir, G7th, D&A Stands, MXR Cables, Schaller, Right On Straps and any more I have missed off the top of my head!
I'll also very proudly have for the first time under the Home of Tone banner, Loaded For Bear Audio cables. These are made in the UK, and feature high quality cable and components all beautifully well made and presented. I personally ordered a cable from Jon and we decided to do something together at the show too so I'm really excited to showcase Jon's work and have them available at the show. 

Really looking forward to seeing familiar faces, and meeting new ones too. I hope to see you there!

The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar final reveal!

The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar final reveal!

Well, you've waiting patiently enough. Seeing as it's sounding, playing and looking great, it's time to reveal what it all looks like and the work that Jason at The Guitar Show, Rob Williams Guitars, Oil City Pickups, Grainger Guitars, Crimson Guitars, Williams Guitars have all put into this instrument which I'm sure will help raise a great amount for the Prostate Cancer charity chosen for the raffle. I do believe that the lucky winner will also receive an amp courtesy of Laney Amplification too, pretty cool indeed! For more information on all of this, do please check out The Guitar Show's social media  and get yourself to the show, enter the raffle and perhaps wind up walking away after winning this cool build! Thanks to Jason for letting me be a small part of it, been good fun seeing it come together first hand and really looking forward to it being taken home by the lucky winner. 
Anyway, onto the final photos! Enjoy

The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar Part II

The Guitar Show 2020 Charity Raffle Guitar Part II

Follow on from part 1, it was time to get the freshly assembled guitar set-up! Willams Guitars had made the neck, and had installed a neatly fitted bone nut blank in there ready for slotting. So it was there where I started the set-up work.
