Don't know if anyone was at the Cornerstone tour, but Nigel was rocking a new signature guitar that's made by a new company in Australia called TMG... It's a sick guitar- La Cabronita tele aged.. Sweet pics on his Instagram and twitter.

I know worship isn't for anyone, but it looks pretty good and the tone speaks for itself.

I just saw this post and thought I would reply. I went into Playa Playa, the only shop that sells TMG guitars. I was so surprised to find out that TMG was their own brand. I was able to meet the owners, Taylor and Shane.

They were so nice, I was amazed by how many big names they already had signed up to the brand. Nigel Hendroff (My idol) Phil and Tommy Emmanuel, Jimmy Barnes from Cold Chisel, Diesel and I even saw a guitar they were making for Keith Urban. (wow)

I've always dreamed for owning my own guitar and TMG seemed to be making the right noises.
I wanted to try a few before I committed to anything. I spent about an hour with Taylor, he was very educated on his craft plus he was so kind to me.

I played a white aged blonde tele and 2 aged strat's...mind blowing!!!!

nothing was too much trouble, they even offered me a beer! (shame I cant drink at college)

Anyway, after trying everything and speaking to the guys I placed my order.

I'm super pumped about my guitar! the quality of their work is just amazing plus they are nice guys 2.

They have bodies and necks on site so you can see for yourself how great their work really is.

I was lucky enough to play Nigel's signature model, the Scarlett I think. That guitar is just super crazy! I am so excited they are gonna be releasing this model soon.

Nigel is a great guitar player and one I've looked up 2 for years! Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy! Well done Nigel!

Thanks Taylor and Shane for making my dream guitar happen, you guys are the best!!!:JAM


P.s, you have got to check out Playa Playa anyway...Jackson ampworks, strymon, cusack, JHS...I could keep going! plus any store that has a two rock available to demo pedals is winning!
P.S

Thanks for the vid. I love Droff but I have never been a fan of the Bigsby trem and this video does not change my opinion at all. Don't like the feel or the sound. I know he is used to it from the Gretsch's he used to play but after playing Duesey's and PRS trems...not sure how you could return. Maybe it's just me.

its true the duesy trems are way nicer, in my opinion. but the bigsbys are just classic!

Great, a Fender Cabronita clone complete with matching headstock - same for the Strats in the background. The pearl buttons are also a nice nod to the Fender Custom Shop's work.

The "Custom Shop" logo on the back of the headstock is a nice nod to the Fender Custom Shop ...

Cue the lawyers drafting cease and desist letters ...

They might be great, but originality (to even a little extent) would be welcome.

Nobody looking at these isn't thinking Fender or Fender Custom Shop.

I echo the "sad" sentiment and can't help but note that this is exceptionally bad karma for a Praise and Worship artist.

If I were Fender, I'd be outraged.

Any update on all the specs of this guitar? Can't seem to find all the detailed specifics.

I've been tracking tmg's progress/business methods and I wouldn't touch them. To me they are the current nash guitars of the p&w scene, this exact thing happened when Carson started playing Nash, follow then trends and history, they may be well built guitars but still a business and prolly a fad

With the prices they are charging I don't think they'll be big sellers in the US.
Exactly... As much as i am a fan of Nigel there are just way too many choices at that price range that will make it difficult to impossible for me to buy one.
