Dale Watson 2001

Dale Watson

"'I have never heard, felt, or seen a custom guitar built so individually with so much quality and designed to fit the players ears, hands and visual likes. Alan Tomkins knows what it means to make a 'CUSTOM' guitar."

July 2001 - Dale Watson is pictured left, at the Broken Spoke in Austin, Texas.

Allan Tomkins & Dale Watson Monday, 5th October 1998 - The end of the Labour Day long weekend, and the faithful packed The Basement club in Sydney, Australia. They came to see and hear Texan troubadour Dale Watson.

Armed with a 'Diamondtina II' model Tomkins guitar, made from the wood of the Australian Ash tree, and backed on this visit by the talents of his 'Aussie Lone Stars', he lived up to the promise of his lyrics...
'Don't rock it, if you can swing it...play A Real Country Song'.

By this time, Dale had already recorded his album The Truckin' Sessions. However, after taking delivery of his custom-made Tomkins guitar, he liked it so much that went back to the USA and re-recorded all the guitar parts with his new instrument!
