I am so proud to have Billy Roan as a new member of the JKing Guitar family. Billy Roan was originally with The DeadLights – hear is a sample of their work.
Billy is currently writing for his band Dead Damn Dirty.
I am in the process of building a new custom designed guitar for Billy with a newly designed headstock (see original drawing of this awesome new headstock), this new JKing guitar model is called The Sound Vessel.
Here is the first review from Billy Roan on July 31st, after playing his new Josh King hand made guitar:
“I have known Josh King for 18 years now, and have had the privilege of witnessing his creativity through art, from his sculptures, to his computer art, his musical talent, and now his mastery building instruments. He worked closely with me and my preferences, likes and dislikes, and my 30+ years of playing the guitar to create Roan-1. I have had Roan-1 going on two weeks, and so far this guitar not only plays amazing, sounds amazing, looks amazing, but Roan-1 has a special aura about her, which is a soul and heart, Josh Kings heart and soul built right into my new Sound Vessel, Roan-1. I could not have asked for a better guitar and I appreciate Josh and his labor of love. I can’t wait to get back to you with more, as I have only had Roan-1 for a short time, and the more I play her the more I fall in love! Thank You Josh King, you knocked this one out of the park!!” Billy Roan
