Searcy String Works newest endorsee

I would like to take a moment to introduce you all to the newest Searcy String Works endorsee. Jessica is the 15 year old daughter of my friend and luthier Mike Dotson. Mike makes some of the most classy reso-phonic slide guitars you have ever seen. A few years ago he asked about a P-90 pickup for his 'PlastiFerri' electric he built from some parts he scrounged up. What I sent him were some of the S-90s I was pushing at the time. They use 6 neodymium magnets and six steel pole screws and have a lot more bright tone than a standard P-90.

Get this.... Jessica has only been really trying to play guitar for a little over a month!! She has a fantastic singing voice to be sure and her playing is FAR better then mine was after a month.

Also, Pipes and PT over at Six String Bliss did an interview with Jeffrey Jones with some production help from Alicia in their 119 show last week. Down load the podcast HERE and find out more about Jeffrey Jones
and the mind that brings us such amazing work.
