Royal and some Seymour Duncan pickups were fitted on Royal Guitar models in 1986 & 1987...
... but from 1987 to 1989 - EMG 81 and 85 Active Pickups were standard.

The Early Days
 
.....has pictures of the more 'standard' type of guitars that I made 
early in my career.

The Later Days  
.....deals with more 'original' designs of my own, like the 'Electra
above,
Medusa, Magenta, Razorback and 'Special Custom Models'.

 

Unfortunately, over the years very few pictures of the guitars have been taken - 
and there are
No pictures at all of the vast majority, particularly those made between - 
1985 and 1989.

If you have been or are a
current owner and have any history, information or  pictures 
of any "
Royal " Guitars or Basses or " Chilcott " Guitars, it would be 'Brilliant'  
if you could
e-mail some information and/or pictures if you have any...
It would be really very
much appreciated to enable an archive to 
be made of these
hand-built (*) British guitars..... Thanks.
