Happy Birthday Allan Holdsworth!

Postby LabyrinthShredder » Tue Aug 06, 2013 4:07 pm

Just wanted to take the time to wish one of the most innovative, creative, and amazing guitar players in history a happy birthday. Allan is truly a genius and the fact that he endorses Carvin so aggressively has always impressed me (and intrigued me before I played Carvins). In music school we used to call Allan "the last boss", because he was like the final foe in a videogame. Both stunning and terrifying, you could never top him. His signature models are incredible and I can't say enough about my new Carvin headless Holdsworth guitar!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALLAN! You'll always be the greatest. :applause:

I'll belatedly second a Happy Birthday to Allan!

Love the nickname of the "last boss"... I don't play a lot of video games these days but this past week I've spent way too much time playing Infinity Blade II... and Allan is definitely the be-all, end-all superboss if guitar playing were a game. My brother and always joked about how funny it would be if Guitar Hero came out with an "Allan Holdsworth Edition" :)

I also send my thanks to Allan (and Carvin) for his input on creating the awesome HH series of instruments. Not only was I finally able to buy a headless guitar like I've always wanted-- but it was a Carvin too... AND a Holdsworth signature model at that. Perfect.

Hello!!! Is that the front desk!?!?!

Well stated fellas! A very happy birthday to Allan Holdsworth and I raise my glass to many more. I too am very happy to have an AH HH1X signature guitar (and plan to get another). Best instrument I've ever played and owned and its entire design is a testimony Allan's genius.

Cheers Allan!
