Oh, I forgot to tell you, the main thing, the coolest thing is that Bruce Forman -- who is one of my favorite jazz guitar players -- he loaned me his hollow-body for the last tune. And it’s a Sonntag that was made for him by Stefan Sonntag. But, it’s one of the most beautiful hollow-bodies I’ve ever heard. It’s just gorgeous sounding. So, he was kind enough to loan me that guitar for “Chelsea Bridge.” And that’s just a beautiful sounding guitar, man. I had fun playing that thing. What a gorgeous guitar. I’m very tempted to call that guy in Germany and ask him if I could get some kind of deal, if he could make me one too, because I love the sound of Bruce’s other guitar. He mainly plays an L5, and I love the sound of a Gibson L5. But, this guitar has a single coil, so it has a different kind of thing. And I’m just really attracted to it. Maybe it’s just because I love single coil pickups on my Strat, and the single coil pickups on that hollow-body give it such a beautiful tone. In fact, that might be my favorite tone on the whole record.more
The contact between Sonntag Guitars and Bruce Forman developed at Wrexham Summer School 2004 in Wales. Bruce was booked as a lecturer. During the evenly sessions at the hotel bar he was struck by the Sonntag J16H Ballade. He detected that this guitar had exactly the sound which he needs for his BeBop and Western Swing projects. He ordered it in wine red and baptized her on the name »Ruby«.
