Greg Smallman of Smallman Guitars
is another luthier that I greatly respect. And a hell'uva
nice bloke to boot. Coffee and cultural exchange!
Skip Sail is a wonderful blues performer
who has worked with many artists including Bob
Brozman. Me and Skip with his 1936 Hudson Terraplane
and Greg Beeton Cone equipped 1938 National Steel.
I'm the one with the 2004 Neil
Graham Pro-Deluxe Marine Band Harp with Mpingo
Wise is another acclaimed luthier from Western
Australia and is also the harp player for the 10 Cent
Shooters and the Wise Family band.
Phil Manning and Mahogany
Manning needs no introduction to Australian blues
aficionados. Phil is an inductee into the Australian
Music Hall of Fame along with his acclaimed band Chain.
Seen here playing a Noyce Mahogany acoustic.
Phil and Mack Manning
Here's a shot of Phil and his son
McKinley (named after McKinley Morganfield, aka Muddy
Waters). Young Mack is also an up and coming player
and is building his self designed guitar with some
help from Phil and me.
Tilders is synonymous with Australian blues. Dutch

significant in raising the profile of Noyce instruments
in the very early days.
