As most of you (if not all) know, I run LGM Guitars. It is because of Jemsite that LGM Guitars exists today, and one special woman.
LGM Guitars, first became a reality, when I built the acoustic guitar for Chrissy, had it not been for her, I never would have realized my potential for this, it was a pure loving desire that lead me to build that guitar.
Soon afterwards, I built the first LGM Guitars website, which, was ok, but didn't get much traffic.
Mike (bammbamm) then sent me his 555 neck to inlay, it was my second inlay ever, he put great faith in me, and I owe him, his neck brought me more work, and the acoustic, and his neck, gave me great confidence.
Ibanez Collector then offered to build me a website, he put time and effort into it, and I was very appreciative. I thank him for his efforts as well.
The big turn came, when Patrick Deno, offered to build me a full flash website, it was a learning experience for him, but learn he did, to the point that I think LGM Guitars website is among the nicest looking sites on the internet. His ideas floor me constantly, and his willingness to try new things, his patience with me (for not knowing sh*t about website design and asking all kinds of scatterbrain questions) and his incredible eye for this stuff, have completely impressed me.
If you need a website built, I HIGHLY recommend contacting Patrick, you will not be sorry, he is as honest, and as professional as they come. He views some of my hairbrained ideas as I view alot of custom work, as a challenge, forcing him to dig deeper and pull the proverbial rabbit from his hat.
Patrick, you deserve all the compliments in the world bro, along with doing a GREAT site for me, you're a fantastic friend, one of my best.
Then we come to the 911 project. There are many people to thank in this project.
EKG Guitars, for the body, thank you Eddie, the body is fantastic from what I've heard, I can't wait to get the guitar put together.
Along with the 911 project, Eddie and I have become good friends, working together rather than in competition. I am proud to work with Eddie on projects.
About Time Designs, Darren has been a great friend, as well as a pure artist, I trust his artistic eye, and had absolutely no concern in his swirling a project so close to my heart. The swirl is amazing Darren, I can't wait to put it together.
Jon Rayl, for the pickups, and hardware I needed, another great friend, and a really kewl karaoke partner, (if karaoke can ever actually be considered kewl LOL)
Butch Slusher, for being not only a fantastic customer, but getting me chrome hardware for the 911 after I decided I didn't want to use the cosmo black stuff I'd bought! LOL
And of course, all my friends on Jemsite, you know who you are, you are the people that have encouraged me as well as supported me. You guys all rock.
And of course the people who keep LGM Guitars alive, my customers, without you, well, I guess I wouldn't be in business! You have all been great and I look forward to working with you in the future, as well as all new customers!!!
Because of all of you, my dream is becoming a true reality, I hope I can help make your dreams come true as well
oh yeah, Patrick has just updated much of the site as well, with new pages added under "LGM's work" along with a shop tour
