1 Michiel 1 year ago So, this happened this afternoon!ES-250 inspired guitar built in 2009 by Dutch master builder Daniel Slaman of www.newvintageguitars.com. It has a solid carved spruce top, lacewood sides and back and ... a Charlie Christian pickup.I've been hunting for an ES150 ever since I started with Elektra. But finding an affordable one, in good playable condition, in Europe, is next to impossible ...Then I met with Daniel, early 2015, for an interview and got to play his outstanding instruments and more specifically, his DS150 and DS250 guitars. (Here is the full interview: )And finally, after trawling the web for ES150s and Slaman's guitars for nearly two years, one finally appeared online this week that was within my reach.This afternoon I met halfway with the seller - a real gentleman. After trying the guitar for 15 minutes I found I just couldn't give it back. This was THE tone, the guitar, I was looking for. A done deal!
