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!"

“The Building of the EGB Community Build hasn’t even started yet and I already can’t contain myself. Andy Manson Custom Guitars built me this prototype trying to convince me that this is actually happening.” Jacky Bastek, August 2017
