"As a kid growing up in northern New Jersey, I remember hearing Vinnie Bell's name all the time. I heard he was not only a great session player, but also a guitarmaker.

Eventually, I discovered that he did more than just make guitars...he was an innovator. He tailored the instrument to enhance and compliment countless music venues. He did it all....and still does! What an inspiration!

Thanks, Vinnie!"
