    Anyone play an SVL Strat? This model sounds like a winner, especially given the fact that it is being built to replace Matt Schofield's 61 Fender Strat on the road. Does anyone have contact information for SVL?

    It's a guitar built for him by his tech Simon Law. i don't know if he's making them to sell or just to give Matt an alternative to his Pre CBS Strat.

    Simon also works as a writer for the UK 'Guitarist' magazine. You may be able to contact him there.

    Yea, looks like he builds about 6 guitars a year. Maybe Fred Stuart at Virtual Vintage would be a good alternative.

    Great looking site, not cluttered, very contemporary and cool. I am a huge fan of Matt's and have been and have been googling SVL for a while and never came up with anything until now!! I wish you all the best and I am certain that your name is going to become one to look out for in Strat and Tele style guitars.
