13 December 2003, I hosted the Hugh’s Fine Guitars,
Morgan Get Together, hopefully the first of many exclusive
events aimed at alerting South African guitar enthusiasts
to the various superior instruments and related product available
these days. The purpose of the Get Together was to raise the
profile of Morgan Guitars, and provide an opportunity for
my existing Morgan customers to showcase their guitar skills
and compare notes with each other. Also, the gig was designed
to allow the ever increasing guitar community to socialize
and get to know each other.
I was very encouraged
by the turnout, Throughout the day, about 50 people attended,
coming from all points of the compass, arriving from as far
afield as Natal, Lesotho, and even the UK! The arrival of
8 magnificent Morgans coincided with the Get Together, and
everyone had the opportunity to sample the fine tone, craftsmanship
and playability of these superb instruments.
All in all, the event
was a roaring success, and it looked to me as if everyone
was thoroughly enjoying themselves. Groups of people began
to materialize all over the place, having their own little
jam session, and festivities continued well into the evening.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone
who took the time to come along, and look forward to seeing
you all again at more of my events.
Happy picking for 2004!
