Where You At?


I've updated my map and the Find Us page on my site to make it even easier to find Haze Guitars. The new map allows you to more easily find your way, especially from locations outside Dublin (I'm guilty of having been a little Dublin-centric on the old map). New bus route information is included and there are map coordinates that you can plug in your GPS or smart phone.

What an age we live in.

As it turns out, this is pretty timely. For some reason, Bing Maps has recently changed and is now mislabelling roads at my location. I've no idea why this might be; they used to be fine. Open Street Map and Google Maps are still correct, by the way. Apple Maps on the iPhone is fine too.

If you're using Bing , please be careful. My address is Rossberry Avenue but, at the time of writing, that road is displayed on the map as Rossberry Park.

If you want to do the sat-nav thing, the coordinates are below. Different devices require different formats (DMS or DD) so both are listed.

Degrees, Minutes, Seconds (DMS):

  • Latitude 53 20 21 (North)
  • Longitude -6 26 14 (West)

Decimal Degrees (DD):

  • 53.339114, -6.437398

Or just use address, 54 Rossberry Avenue, Lucan. Do remember to drop me a line to sort an appointment first, though.

Shiny New Look at Haze Guitars

Guitar Repair Dublin - Haze Guitars

Guitar Repair Dublin - Haze Guitars

So what do you think? I've whittled and carved and hammered and sawn my way through a complete web site update. I reckon it looks quite snazzy. I think things should be pretty stable and solid around here but if you notice anything odd over the next few days, I'd appreciate it if you could drop me a line.

Other than the new coat of paint, I've managed to get a few more images of some of the custom instruments I've made. I've been a bit remiss, in the past, about keeping photographs of my guitars and basses but have managed to pull a few together for your viewing pleasure. I'll be more careful about this in the future and will try to get some more images of older instruments too.

I've also enabled comments on these blog posts—the future is interactive, I understand. Do feel free to pipe up with questions, thoughts and whatnot. At the moment, as this site is for my business, I'm moderating comments. We'll see how we get on.

You'll also notice some sharing links down the bottom. If you used them to tell your friends all about the shininess here at Haze, that'd be great.

I hope you like the new look.

Joe Bonamassa In My Virtual Shop-Window

I'm off to see Joe Bonamassa play in Dublin's Vicar Street next week (Thursday, 7th if you're interested). This is a very good thing. I like Joe Bonamassa - for some musicians, the guitar is a tool only; a means to an end. Best I can tell though, Joe Bonamassa is a guitar geek. And, as a guitar geek myself, I like it when I see it in others.

So, when I had a call asking if I'd mind popping some flyers up in my workshop to help promote the gig, I was happy to help. And I figured that, since this site is my virtual shop-window, I'd pop up a flyer here too.

As well as being a guitar geek, Bonamassa's not half bad at playing the thing either and it seems that, if you haven't already got a ticket, you might still be in with a chance to do so.

Now, if I could just get him to play one of my guitars on stage…  ;-)
