Bloodstock 2017

15th August 2017

Great weekend seeing bands at Bloodstock including meeting Amon Amarth while they signed the Viking V for the EMP competition. A big thanks to James and Mark from EMP for organising and making it happen.


I received the Blitz today and the pictures don’t do the quality of the work and the overall instrument justice at all. It’s by far the most beautiful guitar I’ve ever seen. The best part is that I’m lucky enough to own it.

James is more than just a craftsman; he’s an artist. His ability to not only be easy to work with, but to adapt a concept and bring it to life is what makes him truly unique as a Luthier. Thanks again James!
