The Guitar Geek interview at The Guitar Show 2020!

The Guitar Geek interview at The Guitar Show 2020!

As more time locked away passes by, I become more grateful for how lucky we were timing wise that The Guitar Show this year was able to happen. It was such an awesome weekend too, the best vibes! Someone who has always been supportive of my guitar efforts has been Andy from The Guitar Geek, and we finally had chance to meet that weekend where he kindly also filmed our chat! Andy's channel has continued to grow on YouTube with over 23k subscribers now, which is well deserved knowing the hard work he has put in. 
I dread interviews in case I do my usual social awkwardness, but Andy helped me feel at home so hopefully the video is an enjoyable one for you all!
Massive thanks to Andy, appreciate it!

Green Sofa Chronicles demo the McNelly Duckling & A5 Signature Plus set!

Green Sofa Chronicles demo the McNelly Duckling & A5 Signature Plus set!

Jari reached out to me in November of 2019 expressing his interest in ordering a set of McNelly Pickups for his Suhr Classic T guitar. 
After some discussion, Jari decided to give the Duckling neck position pickup along with a A5 Signature Plus pairing (which happens to be a personal favourite set for a Tele). Well, I heard from Jari again yesterday who let me know about his new YouTube demo channel along with an amazing A/B comparison video he has kindly made featuring his new McNelly Pickups! Both the Suhr and McNelly sets sound great here, so it was great to hear them side by side which is always useful for pickup buyers and Tele fans alike. 
Thanks very much to Jari for making this video, and I wish him all the best with his new channel! I've linked below if you like the look of this video and wish to subscribe to his work.

Tim has been well known for his custom pickup work since McNelly Pickups began,  and it's great to see some of that custom work find it's way to the standard range. Tim released some teaser photos of an awesome retro cut pickup cover as well as some P90 Soapbar sized Gold Foils and the response was superb!

Josh Smith, a Retrograde Cambridge & a set of McNelly Stagger Swagger V2s!

Josh Smith is a player on most guitarists radars these days. Whether you are a blues/jazz fan or not, the respect for his ability is undeniable, and rightly so! I just came across this video by a wonderful looking US store, Music Emporium, of Josh playing a stunning Retrograde Cambridge guitar which has a set of Dogear mount McNelly Pickups Stagger Swagger V2s fitted.
Although that particular mount style is custom order (but can happily be made again no problem!) this is a wonderful demonstration of how well this pickup responds to the guitar's they're mounted in.
Enjoy!

Meet the latest McNelly Pickups set! The Chaplain

Meet the latest McNelly Pickups set! The Chaplain

I've been really excited about this set, after Tim teased some prototype videos on his social media channels recently.

McNelly have never let tradition dictate design and The Chaplain is a testament to that approach. By taking some inspiration from the Charlie Christians, Tim has made something that's not only bold, but extremely expressive with none of the honk. The tight and punchy low end is combined with exceptional clarity that is well beyond any traditional humbucker. But don't mistake this for a jazz-only affair. When you push harder, you'll be rewarded with dynamic response and distortion that doesn't get in the way of chords.

McNelly Pickups at the Home of Tone going into 2019

I'll be honest, with so many aspects of starting and trying to grow your own business, It's difficult to pinpoint my proudest moment since doing this, but I feel I can very much put representing McNelly Pickups right up there at the top of the list. I've worked with Tim at McNelly Pickups since 2015, and he has been one of the most reliable, consistent, innovative and inspiring suppliers to work with and it's an honour to represent such a quality brand here in the UK.

Pickup spotlight - McNelly Jazzmaster range

Pickup spotlight - McNelly Jazzmaster range

For me, the Jazzmaster totally reset the bar of what I wanted from a guitar. The Chime, overall feel, scale, string tension and versatility spoke to me instantly. This is the same for so many of my customers, so I wanted to highlight the range of Jazzmaster pickup options available through us, how you can capture the classic JM tones and how you can mix it up a little without the need for re-routing or a new pickguard. So let's dive right in.
