Jacky Bastek's first impressions:

"Last weekend I got to hang out with the European tribe of outstanding guitar luthiers. It has been a lovely experience and I'm incredibly grateful to be part of a very exciting project. Thanks to everyone for being so lovely and welcoming. It's been amazingly inspiring to experience such a high amount of creativity in one room and I'm looking forward to seeing you all again!

(And hell yeah I wanna build guitars now!)

Sometimes life is pretty exciting and I feel incredibly honoured to be a part of this amazing project. Over the next months you can follow the process of building a custom bass, a custom electric guitar and a custom acoustic guitar on the @EGB Community Build Facebook page. And hey, one of those lovely instruments will end up in my hands. Whuuuuttt? Yesss, I am going crazy on the design. Yes, I spend most of my current time reading about wood. Yes, I am in love with the EGB. And yes, if you come to the Holy Grail Guitar Show you can try the guitar!"
