Richard Hawley Front and Center In Guitarist Magazine


Former Pulp guitarist and solo musician Richard Hawley enjoyed an eight-page spread inside the November issue of Guitarist magazine, just in case you missed it.

The Gretsch aficionado welcomed the magazine to his studio, where he unveiled his guitar collection.

“Guitars for me are synonymous with love,” he told Guitarist. “They go hand in hand because I think of all the time that people spent with me when I was a kid, teaching me stuff they didn’t have to.”

Hawley’s love for guitars is nothing less than fervent — he’s amassed a collection of more than 100 instruments, some of which include his Gretsch Country Gentleman, Gretsch Silver Falcon, Gretsch Country Club and Gretsch G6120DC.
