Bill Lawrence Guestbook

March 24, 2013 is Bill Lawrence's 82nd Birthday!

Heinrich Heine said, "Music is a strange thing. I would almost say it is a miracle. For it stands half way between thought and phenomenon, between spirit and matter, a sort of nebulous mediator, like and unlike each of the things it mediates - spirit that requires manifestation in time, and matter that can do without space ... we do not know what music is"

We salute that kid from Cologne Germany & his lifetime devotion to the world of music!

Although I never had the opportunity to meet Bill, I love what he held true and everything he brought to us.

The world needs more Bill's.

The best pickups that you can buy!!! Which is why Jason's and Joe's and all the other Boutique Pickups are being replaced en masse with Wilde and Vintage 70's & 80's Bill Lawrence Pickups. I just can't use anything else!

My one regret is that Bill & Becky had shop set up within 5 miles from me in Bethlehem, PA, and I had no clue. Might have been in the local music store when Bill was there, and again, no clue.

Also, my Mom passed away 12-28-13 not quite 2 months after Bill, so it is all the more special every time I play or even think about Bill and his pickups.

Thank you for truth in a world of lies.....

With Love

Dear Becky,

Althoug it is over a year now, I have only just learned of Mr Lawrence's Passing - a sad piece of news indeed. I remember calling Bill from Sydney, Australia, to order three jazz pick-ups for my strat and I was in awe of this remarkably kind and clever man - he wanted to know details about my playing and sound that I heard in my head before reccommending a pick up that would hopefully make me happy; that, they did very much!

From today, as I continue play this guitar, Bill's genius and humanity will live with me through his sound even more. Thank you forever! And thanks to Becki and the team for mantaining the legacy.

Vale BL

PS. I requested a YES to receiving a thank you message only to ascertain that Becky has read my message.
