From 2006 to 2008 Mathias worked for BJ & Byrne, prototyping and building the first
Series of the ‘British Venue’ models. During this time he also built custom guitars
for Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studio, Elliot Randall (Steely Dan) and Robbin Thompson.
Mathias still builds custom guitars for BJ & Byrne.
