JJ Guitars - Park Lane
From JJ Guitars:
My wood suppliers obtained the work to import wood and provide for the Park Lane refit and also remove the old original materials. I was informed because I was looking to buy some Brazilian Mahogany. They explained that their job was a palatial refit in Park Lane London (built around 1720) and that they could supply wood from the refit and also supply some from their newly imported wood, etc.
I asked more about the building but they were sworn to secrecy and they were not able to divulge any private personal client details. It was mentioned that Mohammed Al- Fayed had just sold his Park Lane property so this could be the building but I really cannot confirm that this is the case. I think Al-Fayed sold Harrods in London at the same time which was around 2010.I only have enough of this wood for another 7 guitars and these are un-sold at the moment. The first Park Lane Guitar was sold a couple of years ago to Jeff McErlain who subsequently used it on his latest album entitled “Now” with Robben Ford. Another Park Lane Guitar was supplied last January to a customer at NAMM and I am due to complete a Park Lane guitar for Jess Lewis who is a major talent. She did many of the tracks for Jam Tracks Central when she was younger. This one is in Sea Foam Green for a change and the Mountain Grey Guitar will soon be with you on the showcase.
