2016 marked our tenth year in business and in those last 10 years we have made a lot of guitars and fulfilled a lot of dreams. I have lost count as to how many Gaskell players there are in the world. It’s a lot.
We have consistently made awesome left handed guitars and basses. Gaskell guitars are and always were excellent and unique instruments.
However, from July 2017 I will no longer be taking orders for custom left handed guitars. It would be correct to say that I am retiring from the industry. I have reached the point in Life where the time to reassess one’s priorities and activities in Life is upon me.
Australia’s Left Wing politics have continually made it hard for Australian businesses and Australians to survive and enjoy the benefits of their hard work. Australian lifestyle and culture has been destroyed by the Globalist Left Wing agenda. With age comes wisdom. Wisdom comes from experience and from using one’s intellect to put two and two together when things don’t otherwise add up. Destruction of cultures, identity, individuality, and the vilification of freedom of speech are goals of the Left Wing agenda. Look at Germany and Canada. Watch what is going to happen in France with their new Socialist/Communist government. It is only a matter of time. In all my years I have never seen the Leftist criminal cartel scream so loud and attack so viciously as they have been doing since 2016 when they lost ground following Hillary Clinton’s defeat. Perhaps that’s a good thing. People are waking up.
Getting back to guitars: I am wrapping up the last of the current builds and aim to have them all finished by the end of the Australian Financial Year which for us is June 30. From July 1, 2017 we will cease to operate.
I am always contactable by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and if you really want to have a guitar made, we can still arrange something directly through my builder, Charles of Cilia Custom Guitars.
It’s been a great 10 years. An awesome time. Not many people can say that they have spent a good chunk of their life doing exactly what they love to do! I can. My hat goes off to all of you who have bought a Gaskell guitar or bass. You guys are the greatest. Do well!
