Mr Will - guitarist extraordinaire and photography genius

Mr Will
and Sarah Miller at a gig in Audlem Church as part of the Jazz and Blues Festival.

Mr Will plays a Heritage Archtop (The Epiphone Emperor is now a back up guitar) with a Fishman transducer bridge and magnetic neck pickup, run to separate amps via a stereo to 2 x mono lead that I made up for him after installing the bridge. Since then I have also modified the bridge by slotting it for a set of 12 gauge strings - and seeing his percussive rhythms against the strings of the guitar, it's just as well it's slotted deeply. Will keeps the bridge floating depsite my wishes to adhere it where it has perfect intonation - it's a jazz thing he tells me. It means that the intonation has to be checked constantly, but he swears it has better tone. Will has recently followed my advice and the bridge has been "fixed" in position so that he can change strings without losing intonation....he got tired of bringing it back after every string change for the intonation to be set....

Long Time Dead

Long Time Dead's Website

These guys are a real talent. I've been repairing and setting up their guitars for some time now, but never saw them play until they supported Clawfinger recently. I came away very impressed...they are really professional and I hope they get somewhere as they have a real passion for their music and they gel really well as a band. Their recorded work, although polished, does not convey the heaviness of the live show, the songs take on a whole different perspective. I'd recommend anyone to catch them live to really see what LTD are all about.
