GRASSROOTS MUSIC VENUES RECEIVE LIFELINE If you read our May newsletter, you will remember that we dedicated it to MusicWeeks article highlighting the challenges, without government intervention, that the British music industry was facing as a consequence of Covid-19, without government intervention. Well, we are thrilled to learn that the UK government has announced that Britain’s globally renowned arts, culture and heritage industries will receive a £1.57 billion rescue package to help weather the impact of the coronavirus. Thousands of organisations across a range of sectors including the performing arts and theatres, heritage, historic palaces, museums, galleries, live music and independent cinema will be able to access emergency grants and loans. The money, which represents the biggest ever one-off investment in UK culture, will provide a lifeline to vital cultural and heritage organisations across the country hit hard by the pandemic. It will help them stay afloat while their doors are closed. Funding to restart paused projects will also help support employment, including freelancers working in these sectors. This new package will be available across the country and ensure the future of these multi billion-pound industries are secured. More information at www.musicvenuretrust.com
FIBONACCI CALIFORNIAN FITTED WITH FLOATING DICKINSON PAF
We have guitars available in a variety of finishes, at various stages of completion, either ready for immediate dispatch or ready for hardware.
Check out this stunning, carved top Californian we just finished, which is now looking for a ‘Forever Home’. This beautifully proportioned archtop, has a body size of 375mm (14.76”) x 63mm (2.48")deep, consisting of a premium, seasoned 35mm, AAA select flame maple sound-board, 3-ply laminated maple back & sides, and a maple neck. This particular Californian is fitted with a Jon Dickinson floating PAF, which was originally developed for us by Jon and Nigel Price, for the Londoner. Jon Dickinson pickups are not for sale generally. In fact, the only other guitar that you may find a Dickinson pickup fitted to, may be one of Theo Scharpach's master builds.
This Californian has painted body binding to give it a real contemporary vibe. It can be purchased online from our shop or by sending us an email directly. Stop by our custom page to see what else may ‘floats your boat’. https://www.fibonacciguitars.com/custom
