(PRESS RELEASE): PureSalem Guitars adopts an inspired approach and attitude while honoring the electric guitars’ glorious past. It‘s simplicity in design. It’s wood, wire, and strings. It’s rock and roll, and not rocket science.

To quote David Fair (Half Japanese):

The idea is to put a pick in one hand and a guitar in the other and with a tiny movement rule the world!”
