Fun Facts:

I am a Primary School teacher outside of music


"B.i.t.d in the 1980s, I always saw my idols play Jackson guitars. I always loved their slick look. When I finally tried a Jackson I knew it was the original and the best. I love the necks, the feel and sound. They are very comfortable and versatile. I can go from playing rock to metal with ease".
