One of the most beautiful gifts that i received whilst in Seattle in November, was a Minarik Guitar. www.minarikguitars.com. I was in the exhibition room at the Rockrgrl Conference and Bill Minarik came over and was enchanted that I was there. He had been a long time fan. He literally handed me an endorsement and asked me to choose an electric guitar. I naturally chose the most beautiful one, a honeyburst Minarik GODDESS that is 1 out of only 25 special edition honeybursts in the world, (4 were left handed) and they never will be made again. Ecstatic. As you all know, my first instrument is the piano,.. but for the last 2 years I've been writing a lot on the guitar, and I play Evolution on the acoustic. I also love to produce guitars in the studio and it's personally my favorite instrument to record, even over the piano and keyboards. I've always longed to incorporate electric guitar playing into my life and my live show. I think acoustics are too cumbersome for me and i want to experiment with the melodics of an electric that i have come to know and love so well when producing in the studio. so... it's time to embrace this dream! I am very thankful to Minarik Guitars, and Bill especially, and I hope to promote them fully and enlighten guitarists about these wonderful guitars. I also want to thank Rynata from Femmuse.com who brought us together.
