Reuben Morgan - Hillsongs

Not long ago these guys reached out to me whilst I was in London. They are guitar makers, Master Craftsmen. When I met up with them, they brought some of the finest guitars I've ever played and asked me if they could make me my dream guitar. Crazy!

Truth is - I didn't even know what my dream guitar was, and felt reluctant to accept - though I became convinced they weren't going to take no for an answer. Fast forward a few months, lots of conversations with Nigel Hendroff and others, and we came up with the guitar I'm holding in my hands. I love the guys at #lakestoneguitars. This is like a promise in waiting, thank God for faithful people who are devoted to their craft. For them, worship is to make musical instruments for the glory of God. How inspirational is that!

I have just been to Knighton Music Centre and picked up my new Lakestone OM/D. I went in to look at Non Rosewood OM L'arrivee, but it wasn't what I was after. After trying everything else they had, Steve handed me your OM. As soon as I played the first note I knew it was the one.

Just wanted to compliment you on building it. This guitar has such a wondrous tone. I love to hit a chord and listen as it slowly decays, aghast at the sparkle and all the awesome overtones. This one is definitely a keeper, it really speaks to me.

I have a Lakestone OM Cedar top, No. 1. It completely blows me away! You have created something of great beauty.

I sold off and traded in all I had so I could make this guitar mine after playing it at Knighton Music Centre. You have created something of great beauty. Many thanks, and if you ever come over to the shop in Knighton please let me know as it would be tremendous to meet you.

After all these years, I've got my ideal acoustic guitar - a Lakestone JM/C! I was delighted to be able to select the Cedar top, the Lacewood sides and back (choosing the flat sheets from your stock), the model and shape, with the bevel edge - plus that fantastic L.R. Baggs pick up, to make the guitar that I've always wanted.

Your attention to detail, your craftsmanship and the sheer quality of the wood and the hardware has made this guitar a thing of true beauty. I'm looking forward to enjoying this one for a long time - it's with me for life!

Just wanted to let you know that after owning my Lakestone OM/D for around 6 weeks I am still convinced that it is the best acoustic guitar that I have ever played. The tone is awesome, the playabilty is fantastically easy and intonation all over the fretboard is spot on.

The first time I played it in the shop, I played an E chord, and the tone and volume just blew me away. It still does now, a truly jaw dropping tone. I have very slightly lowered the nut to my preference and I have tried some Heritage low tension strings which really suit it tonally. Many thanks again for building such a wonderful instrument, I absolutely love it and couldn't be happier. Good luck and I hope you sell loads of these truly wonderful, world class acoustic guitars.
