Haze Guitars on YouTube

Thanks to the Byzantine bureaucracy of Google, it was necessary to move the Haze Guitars YouTube channel.  I'm really sorry if you'd already subscribed. I've re-uploaded some stuff but I've lost my stats and the like which sucks a little. At least it should now be done and dusted for ever (or until we all get fitted with our Google brain implant).

hope to be uploading some more videos as time rolls on so it'd be great if you could pop over and subscribe (or re-subscribe). 

Here you go: Haze Guitars on YouTube

Cheers everyone.  

 

Haze Blue Collar On Sale

Blue Collar Guitar

Oh, man, you're gonna love this. Not content with offering half-price setups all this month but I can now announce the Haze Blue Collar will be on sale all through January too.

Any orders* for a Blue Collar build, placed in January, will be at the ridiculously low price of €950.

€950 for a hand-built Haze Blue Collar guitar.

When you place an order, you only pay a deposit of €350 with the balance payable when the guitar is completed. That's gotta be good news for your post-Christmas wallet.

Pretty cool, eh?

The Blue Collar

Stripped-back brilliance. That's what you get with a Haze Blue Collar. It's built to play, and play hard. A slab-body and a single pickup gets you to the music with the minimum of fuss. And, damn, this pickup can growl, howl and sing. It's a Duesenberg Domino—a fantastic P-90 style pickup with all of the tone and edge you'd expect.

Here, though, that P-90 sound is coupled to an ash body and a 25.5"-scale maple neck so the Blue Collar doesn't lose focus or get muddy. It keeps its composure when others turn to mush. This makes it one tough little bruiser with a lot more versatility than you'd expect.

Blue Collar playability is something else. An oil and wax finish plays fast and slick and easy while the neck-carve (my own secret-sauce shaping) gives you one of the most comfortable handfuls you've ever played.

If you'd like to have a go on a Blue Collar to feel how great it plays and hear how great it sounds, pop into Some Neck Guitars on Aungier Street in Dublin. You can try out a Blue Collar there from Monday (and I'll begrudgingly tell you that there are usually a LOT of other tasty guitars there too—it's a place you really should check out).

How can I avail of this astounding value?

Good question.

To get your guitar-playing mitts on your very own Blue Collar, just drop me a line and we'll get the ball rolling.

Seriously? €950. You'd be mad not to.

Pat Courtenay Presents: ROCK

Pat Courtenay Presents

The first 'Pat Courtenay Presents' gig was last night and it rocked.

Local readers will probably know Pat from Radio Nova but this is something new. In a bid to help showcase local and rising bands, Pat put together a fantastic night of rock (hopefully the first of many).

There were three bands on the night The Clap, Eazy Tyger and The Harleys; each different sorts of awesome. If you get a chance to see any of these, take it. I suspect you won't be disappointed. As a clever touch, Pat had even arranged a couple of buskers to entertain as the bands changed over.

I drank a pint or two and did some minor guitar-tech stuff for Pat, who played a few songs with the bands. Rather splendidly, he played his Haze Blue Collar guitar. You can call me biased if you like but, damn, it sounded great.

Thanks to Pat for the shout-out on the night and for organising a night of great music.

Teasing: It's Gonna Be Big, Guitar Geeks

Seriously. It's going to be big. Really big.

Things are afoot. Plans have been laid. Schemes have been, erm, schemed.

A big announcement is looming.

Are you teased?

Are you tantalised?

You should be. This is going to be pretty amazing. If you're a guitar geek, you're going to love it.

Stay tuned. Tell your friends to tune in and, having done so, to stay tuned.

I can say no more right now. Well, no more except this:

It's gonna be good. It's gonna be big. It's gonna be stellar.
