I just wanted to let everyone know that Josh Hegg passed away earlier this week. As many of you know, Josh was an integral part of the North American gypsy jazz scene. A skilled technician of string instruments, Josh refined the art of setting up, modifying, and repairing Gypsy guitars. Back when I started this business in 2003, Josh was one of the only people in North America with the skill and experience to properly work on Selmer style guitars. I was fortunate to have him close by as he went on to setup hundreds of guitars for us over the years. Many of you reading this are likely to still be playing one of these guitars he setup, using one of his custom bridges, or simply following the heaps of guitar setup advice he contributed to our forum over the years.

Josh was also a fantastic guitarist and a tireless jammer. He was often seen at DjangoFest or Django in June still playing away at the crack of dawn, long after others were too tired (or intoxicated!) to carry on.

Goodbye Josh, you will be missed...
