About the Guitar:

This guitar was made for Kim Simmonds, who used it extensively with Savoy Brown during several years. Kim considered that this guitar sounds great... "I've fell in love with it! Beautiful tone and playability."

This ES 335 style guitar is based on the legendary blues guitar model. This semi-hollow body guitar is an excellent example of the craftsmanship and time that goes into the instruments of Roger Bacorn.

Kim Simmonds further on the guitar:

"The guitar you have is a fabulous instrument and I really enjoyed playing it.
I'm so glad you have it and I know you will treasure wise the painting."

Yes Kim is also a painter and his paintings can be found on some of his later CD covers as well as on his website.
