"I recently met Paul for the first time and I can confirm that it was a hundred percent positive experience. Not only is Paul a superfriendly guy, he also has a lot of knowledge and is genuinely passionate about the gear he sells. I swapped two guitars for a stunning Les Paul Beano, which ticks all the boxes for me: killer looks, sweet velvety tone and super comfy neck, perfectly set up. Thanks Paul!"

"Hey Paul, e
en paar dagen geleden ben ik naar je studio gekomen in Den Haag om te komen kijken naar een prachtige Gibson ES-335 limited edition in Emerald Green. Zodra ik de foto's zag was het liefde op het eerste gezicht. Ik heb je gemaild en daarna ook nog even gebeld en meteen had ik een goede indruk. Eerlijkheid en passie voor je werk en gear zijn kenmerken die duidelijk naar voren kwamen. 

"Als iemand het echt graag wil en het echt vet vind, dan wil ik dat gewoon regelen." 

Beter had ik het zelf niet kunnen omschrijven.
Na een uur te hebben gejamd op de gitaar, en samen gepraat te hebben over muziek en over gear ging ik naar huis, een prachtgitaar rijker. Ontzettend blij met deze aankoop, en ook ontzettend blij dat ik Bees in a Jar heb leren kennen. Ik zal in de toekomst je pagina's in de gaten houden en zeker delen met andere gitaristen.

Succes in de toekomst Paul, nogmaals ontzettend bedankt en (waarschijnlijk) tot ziens!
