Another happy customer: Jim Trick, came to the shop for his custom adjustable guitar strap the other day.
What’s in a strap? Your guitar strap is perhaps the most important accessory to your guitar playing, and should make your playing easier, not harder. Wallpusher Guitar Straps are designed to give maximum flexibility to the player, so they can change the height of the guitar at anytime during play. If you want to make your playing easier and more fun, you can order your own handmade guitar strap on our etsy page.
We had fun with Jim, showing him the shop and many guitars in different stages of production. He played us several of his newest songs, and really loved the ease with which he could change the height of his guitar for solos or rhythm playing.
He was impressed by all the stages of making a guitar, and loved seeing the tools we use. He tried his hand at a Japanese Pull Saw, and did a great job! We ended the night with a ceremonial trashing of the old guitar strap, Jim was so happy with his new Wallpusher strap, he won’t need the old one again!
We love sponsoring our favorite musicians, and Jim is definitely one of them. We met Jim and his wife Alison at Soulfest 2009, were impressed by his playing and stage presence. Jim is an accomplished acoustic guitarist / singer who is able to weave real life stories into melodies ranging in style from contemporary folk to acoustic rock. Jim sings and speaks at concerts, retreats, colleges, churches, Mens ministries, Singles groups, keynote addresses, leadership training, workshops and youth groups. Find out more about his work and talent at www.jimtrick.com or listen to his latest album on myspace.
