Howard Kennedy Guitar. I have been around musicians throughout my life and have always been an admirer of fine instruments. A personalized guitar has been something I have thought about and wanted. Every guitar player is different and so are his/her hands. A guitar needs to be comfortable and light-weight enough to play for hours at a time in any situation without fatigue. The sound has to be clear and tone-great. I contacted Rick and he made that possible. Rick asked what I wanted and sent pictures and detailed statistics and made a beautiful guitar for me on my terms. I know that the guitar he made custom for me will only grow in value. After buying this guitar I will not ever need another stratocaster!
