Matthew Charles Heulitt

Studio and Touring Artist

Retro Classic, 60s Fats
"I've been a strat player all my life but realized I had never awoken to the real possibilities of the instrument until I got a Grosh in my hands. My Retro Classic is impeccably balanced, easy on the fingers, and deliciously sexy. Most importantly it has serious attitude which is a department that most boutique strats tend to fall short in."

In 1997 Matthew relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area and in that time has become one of the most sought after and prolific session guitarist in the area.
