Its the Middle of August

Currently I am in the process of working on several guitars; The first Tinyhawk Diamonda (in process)
A plying V (a flying V Made of Plywood), A guitar made entirely out of bible pages, a couple Tinyhawk Echos and maybe some other possible candidates. All these guitars I'm talking about right now are going to be a part of a gallery show at the RISD Museum called "This is a Show About Rock n' Roll" that opens on October 1st. Very excited and very exciting. 

I'm also working with a few musicians in helping them bring their ideas to life. 

Rob Icaza of the Providence metal band, Howl ( www.myspace.com/howlheavymetal ) and I have been working closely on a custom for him, I'll put up some pictures when that build begins.

Jimmy Lazer of Sick Electric ( www.myspace.com/sickelectric ) is going to be playing "White Lightning" until his bulb burns out or his screen goes static. 

Nick Pagano ( www.myspace.com/nickpagano ) of Fairhaven (2009 WBRU RockHunt winners,  www.myspace.com/fairhavenri ) has been gracious enough to be promoting Holcomb Guitars with a Tinyhawk Echo, most recently at the Newport Yachting Center as the opening act for Guster just this last Friday the 7th, 2009. 

Nick is an excellent player and it was amazing to see someone so talented really play the shit out of something I had made. 

This month is going to be really exciting. Check back for updates!
