We always love to hear about great guitar players, especially when they are using our pickups! Our Japanese distributor, Zenbu Japan, recently informed us that the legendary Kazumi Watanabe has been spinning many of his burning jazz and fusion lines on a Collings SoCo, complete with Lollar Imperials!
Mr. Watanabe has been one of Japan’s most important and influential guitarists (and composers) since the mid-seventies. He has played and recorded with many of the worlds greatest musicians, and received the prestigious Fumio Nanri Award in 1991. He has also been a visiting professor of music at Senzoku Gakuen College since 1996.
“When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a brand new set of P90s, dogear…”
Ok, not exactly the same, but you get the idea. Allow us to take a minute to wish you all a happy and safe Holiday Season, and to say a sincere THANK YOU for your tremendous support and enthusiasm throughout the year.
We’ll be closing the shop starting December 24th, 2011, and returning on January 2nd, 2012. Please feel free to visit our website 24/7 for all of your Lollar needs, and keep those email coming. We promise to get back to you as soon as we wake up return to Camp Lollar.
We are pleased to announce that VintageGitar has been named as the exclusive distributor for Lollar pickups in Norway. Arne and his crew are experts on all things Lollar, and are ready to spread the word from Mandal to Hammerfest. Velkommen!
