Dee J Nelson shreds on a Sully, and you should too!

Saying that Dee J Nelson is multi-talented is like saying that Keith Richards sorta liked to party. From killer guitar-oriented instrumental projects like his newest release “It’s Alive!” to iGod, his collaboration with Andee Blacksugar, to the occasional sighting as his alter ego Stitches the Zombie Guitarist, to finding time to providing music for video episodes of Sully’s Guitar Garage, to teaching guitarists worldwide in person, via Skype, or via his successful releases Monster Power Chords and Lead Guitar DNA through Doug Marks Metal Method, you could say that he’s a busy guy. Check him out at his websitefacebookyoutubetwitter, and right here!

Justin Hold plays a Sully, and you should too!

Justin Hold, guitarist/bassist for Dallas alt-rock duo, L.A. Wedding recently got his hands on one of the '71 prototypes while recording their demo at Empire Sound Studio in Carrollton, TX. 

Per Justin, "I've been jamming on the '71 and getting the feel for it. It's bad ass. Feels great to play."

Shane shreds on a Sully, and you should, too!

With over 30 years of guitar and writing experience in his back pocket....Shane has done his best to make his mark on the Midwest metal and hard rock scene. His current project, VII delivers a unique brand of classic true metal; returning to the roots of what made heavy metal what it is today and garnered legions of faithful metal heads. They stick to their roots; full on true metal for true metal fans. 

Within VII, Shane's alter ego is Canis Diabolis, the evil half brother of Anubis; cast from the depths of the underworld for his uncontrollable wickedness. Part human….part jackal…Canis is known to lull victims into submission with a cacophony of foul chords before unleashing untold atrocities on their flesh and soul with 6 strings of electrified hate that not even Hades can contain.

Kaitlyn Dever plays a Sully, and you should, too!

Kaitlyn started taking guitar lessons from ol' Sully at the age of eight, and I'm convinced that the careful mix of fundamentals and the important stuff like the proper way to raise one's goblet to the Gods of Rock got her started off the right way. As she grew and progressed as a player, she inevitably outgrew her guitars. That problem was solved with a Sully '92. 

You may know Kaitlyn from her role as Eve Baxter, the daughter of Tim Allen's character on ABC's Last Man Standing, or as Loretta McCreedy in FX's Justified, or you may have caught her as a Girl Scout whose cookie sales pitch went sideways on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. She's been in movies such as Short Term 12, Bad Teacher, and The Spectacular Now, among many others.

Not only is she a talented actress and musician, but she's a great young lady who comes from one of my favorite families. And as busy as she is, she's still playing guitar; rather well, I might add! Rock on, sister!

Interested in becoming a Sully artist? Cool. Get in touch.


When it comes to endorsement considerations, it's important for me to set the expectation that everyone pays full price for their guitar (at least on their first one); I'm not throwing free guitars at folks. When you think about it, that would be kinda mean; could you imagine being poked by one of my headstocks? Ouch. So yeah, the lovely and talented folks you see on this page paid for their guitars. 

I ask for the following information; Press kit, CD, Touring schedule, Management info, photos/press clippings from local or national magazines/newspapers, Web/Social network presence, and finally, why Sully guitars? This needs to be a mutually beneficial relationship and if something seems to be a good fit, I'll letcha know and we can take it from there.
