MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM FIBONACCI GUITARS - DECEMBER NEWSLETTER
CONGRATULATIONS! A big congratulations to Howard Laws, who won one of our original prototype guitars in the Keeping Jazz Live raffle. We were thrilled to then learn that Howard, kindly offered to donate the guitar, to Tomorrow’s Warriors. A very worthy cause, where I am sure, it will be well utilised. Together with a Session amp, the raffle raised a total of £3,442.43, as part of the Nigel Price Organ Trio, monster 60 date UK tour. If you haven’t yet seen them live, make sure you catch them next time around....you will be glad you did.
