UK-based Damian Probett is considered by many to be one of the finest electric builders working today. His name regularly appears in conversation alongside the likes of Johan Gustavsson, Gil Yaron, and Michael Stevens.
"One of my early obsessions was old British motorcycles. Those things will teach you one end of a spanner from the other really quickly! I’ve retained a love for these beautiful, quirky things both as machines and for how they represent a time of British manufacturing. My logo and model names are both inspired by these fascinating devices.
I’ve also always played guitar. This led to several years working for one of London’s leading repair shops. Charlie Chandler and Paul Herman remain a source of inspiration and encouragement. I have been fortunate to get to spend time with many vintage instruments. Their unique and sometimes quirky nature was, like the motorcycles of the same era, a source of inspiration for my own designs." ~ Damian Probett
We can probably all agree that the basic parameters of guitar evaluation are: overall build quality, playability, tone, and looks. Sounds about right, yes? There's one other factor that is always present in a exceptional instrument: Feel. Soul. Vibe. Mojo. Whatever you call it, the best builders know how to infuse their instruments with it. Damian has proven time and again that he has mastered the art.
