The guitar came from Norms Rare Guitars in Los Angeles. I was in the U.S for a few weeks and didn’t take a guitar with me, so I thought I’d call by Norm’s and see what they had. I was originally looking for something cheaper, like a Fender Stratocaster vintage reissue but on the day that I went in they were low in stock of those guitars so I started checking out some others.

As soon as I picked up this guitar I knew it was special. It’s all original, even had the original 3 way pickup switch still in place. It’s a real sweetie and fun to play. It can be seen in the videos for Makua Beach, Street Surfer & Going To Kaleponi.

  1. I love Norms! I found an amazing used Custom Shop strat that has the perfect feel for me, and it just has really powerful pickups, too. I didn’t quite believe in the “this one is singing to me” idea til I found this one!

    Love your playing!

  2. Hi Martin, I love your music and am really trying to do it! Not being able to makes it even better!
    Hoping to meet up again soon when I come over in this year!
    Cheers Charles
