James Tyler Facility Pics

As some of you in the Misc forum know, I have been going through real difficult time personally, so I up and and flew out to LA last week to visit my brother. I also decided to splurge and swap out necks on my Tyler Classic, so I dropped it off personally at the factory. Here are some of the images from the shop:

The Front of the shop - located in a plaze off of Ventura Blvd in Van Guys:


So, I walk in the shop with the guitar in hand, and there's this guy right in front of me buffing out this Purple Shmeared Studio Elite Body:


In the next room Jim (Tyler) is setting up a new blue SE and really doesn't notice me at all. paul, his right hand man invites me in to wait for a few minutes while he takes care of a bit of paperwork and I snap some shots of the guitars waiting to be set up,





paul finally returns and gives me the grand tour. . .



Very cool group of guys, and VERY disciplined in the craft. If you haven't played one, you need to. . .

Do they stock Tylers down at the Martin Music in Southaven?

Nope. Only in Cordova. And they've got some sweet ones - I've bought two of them. . . You can go to martinmusicguitar.com to see all the ones they have and have had in stock. . . .

That proto Studio elite looks awesome! Bit more Anderson looking than Tyler normally does?

Those bodies look fantastic, and they are great playing guitars. Such a shame they insist on keeping that fugly headstock.
