My name is Carlos Juan of http://www.american-guitar-center.com. I build limited handmade own brand of acoustic combo amps and own line of pickups, specially for django, flamenco and jazz guitars. I also play and perform, incl. Django festival in Germany. The list of prominent players who use my amps & pickups is long but I have to notice Hisao Fukushima of Hot Club Tokyo and Gypsy Swing as my main reference regarding Django. He plays my amp and uses my pickup considering it to be "the best he ever heard". Recently I had a call of a gentleman named Alan Stratton from UK, who works for Gary Potter, and Ian Cruschank knows me too. I am not shown in UK magazines , since I have no distributor for my products. Its simply because I make very few and sell directly.

I build guitars and once had a Django Reinhardt style one compared to the genuine article. I am interested in offering courses on accoustic guitar building. Used to run a course at Goldsmiths College in London in the late 70's. One of only two courses offered in London at that time. Sincerely Jeremy Broun.
