Coming of Age

Gleaming from the Rose Morris windows of the world, the legendary Shaftesbury line of guitars enticed London's budding guitar heroes and gigging musicians to pick up and play. Soon to be synonymous with the London sound, these tools were wielded by the working musician and London's elite alike. From the windmill power-chords of swinging London, the tones of the future were heard for miles and miles. The city. The gig. The vibe. Echoing excellence once again is a call to our dedicated followers of fashion…. It's smashing time!
