Post New Job Day!
I had an interview for a job at a UK guitar store this morning - and they offered me the job on the spot! So from this Tuesday I will become the Web Content Editor at GuitarGuitar. For those who don't know, that is the UK's largest guitar chain and they are AWESOME for left handed guitars, so i'm pretty pumped to start work there. The job involves photographing/photoshopping all the new gear, writing product descriptions, making graphics, coding etc etc, basically all the content that goes on the website.. so pretty much what I already do on LeftyFretz. Bit of a dream job for me really.

It should hopefully give me a lot of insider information about new guitars and what not, and I'll also have access to all of the new lefties that come into the Glasgow store. The Glasgow store has over 1000 guitars over 2 floors and there is also a digital center next door which specialises in keyboards/synths and other electronic music.

Should be a perfect match for the work I do with LeftyFretz. But I definitely think that for the first month or two site updates will temporarily suffer as I settle into the new work flow.

Good times! :D Also, only a 15 minute commute, compared to 1.5 hours at my old job!

THAT IS WAY BEYOND COOL!

CONGRATS NEAL!

Nothing like playing around all diy with computers, and guitars, and then getting paid for doing it. :mrgreen:

Absolutely awesome mate, congratulations! :D

Bought my Epi Les Paul from these guys. Would be really interested is hearing what you think of the Gretsch G5420 once you find some time to sit and have a play with one ;-)

Thanks guys, next week will be exciting for sure. Getting my hand seen to on Monday and then guitar heaven on Tuesday :)

McBoogle - I don't think they have any of those in Glasgow. I had a quick look at the Gretsch section and I didn't notice any lefties. but it was just a quick look so I might have missed it, I'll check again though.

mcarp - I actually mentioned you during the interview. We got to talking about changing strings and I told them about your prehistoric bass strings :lol:

Not sure how stock is split between stores and it doesnt look like there's any at the moment but hopefully they'll be about at some point :)

Congratulations Neal! :D Fun job!
Bet they took one look at LeftyFretz n hired you. 8-)
Maybe they'll expect you to show around lefty guitars to the lefty customers as well, especially the newbies?

What were you working as before? I've never known
