The material was written, programmed, recorded, mixed, and produced by Jack and is currently being played on jazz and fusion radio stations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Jack on his Electrajet… “I’m totally blown away every time I  play my ElectraJet!  This guitar has been on almost every gig, recording session, and rehearsal I’ve had since receiving it in the summer of 2010.  I wanted a “stratty” sounding guitar but wanted something different cosmetically and the ElectraJet fit the bill perfectly.  My ElectraJet is loaded with Grosh Vintage 60’s pickups in the neck and middle positions and a Grosh Fat 60’s pickup in the bridge position.  It definitely sounds strat-like but still retains it’s own unique sound.  This axe can do everything from warm jazz tones to bright, snappy clean funk tones, to all out hard rock!  I’ve taken this guitar on jazz, r&b, funk, fusion, and rock gigs and it just works in every situation.  The ElectraJet is also perfectly balanced and fairly lightweight making it comfortable to play on long gigs.  The quality and workmanship is top notch and the guys at Grosh are really knowledgeable, super cool, and always helpful whenever I have questions.  Don has really knocked it out of the park with this modern classic!”
