Lauren Ellis started out as a session player for the likes of Monkee Peter Tork, Rita Coolidge, and Nell Carter. Having just recorded her first disc as a solo artist of all original tunes, she's relocating to Nashville and making some serious waves in the music community.


Jimmy Herring

(Aquarium Rescue Unit/Greg Allman Band currently touring with Phil Lesh and Friends) see or for tour dates near you. Jimmy and I go way back to GIT days and I was lucky enough to have graduated in the same year as he. He also plays a Strat I built for him out of seconds while at the Fender Custom Shop and detailed it the way he wanted, 2 nickel cover Seymour 59's and an AM Standard neck with 6000 fretwire. This photo was recently taken at the Greek in LA where we set him up with this Korina bodied/Flame Maple Top BJH loaded with DiMarzio custom wound P-90's. If you catch them on tour keep your eyes peeled for them both, rumor has it its sounding phat as heck and he's been playing it the majority of the show since he received it.
