To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Bob Irwin and I’m the president of Sundazed Music, which has been one of the world’s leading reissue record labels since 1989. Our catalog of over 600 titles covers all ends of the rock, pop, country, jazz, blues, and soul music genres and includes classics by such vanguard artists as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, the Byrds, Otis Redding, Van Morrison, and Buck Owens. One other immortal name that we proudly feature is that of Davie Allan, by whom we have released six exceptional albums on both CD and vinyl.

As the leader of Davie Allan & the Arrows in the 1960s, Allan blazed a bold new path for the electric guitar and influenced generations of guitarists to come. Allan’s aggressive, largely instrumental style is the missing link between the surf and psychedelic periods, and his pioneering use of supremely overdriven distortion—best heard via his 1967 smash “Blue’s Theme”—paved the way for heavy metal and punk, earning him the well-deserved title King of the Fuzz Guitar.

Davie Allan’s guitar style is one of the most recognizable, revolutionary, and widely imitated sounds in the history of rock ’n’ roll. It is my understanding that there is an effort currently underway to persuade Fender to manufacture a Davie Allan signature Jazzmaster guitar. I can think of few other musicians—and few other makers of musical instruments—more deserving of such an honor. I sincerely hope that Fender will consider this proposition.

Best regards,

Bob Irwin
President/CEO, Sundazed Music

To whomever is cool this may concern,

I would like to respectfully ask you to consider, and I would enthusiastically recommend, a Special Edition Davie Allan Signature Jazzmaster.

He is without a doubt one of the most exciting, accomplished, and inspiring guitar players that has ever lived and remains tirelessly active, having been recently featured in the prestigious opening position at our International Garage Rock Festival. His legendary instrumentals remain a staple of my Underground Garage format, heard 24 hours a day on Sirius XM Channel 25. Davie also has the theme song on my syndicated show, Little Steven’s Underground Garage, heard by over a million listeners in 200 markets in the USA alone, plus over 50 countries worldwide.

Davie’s classic Christmas collection, Fuzz For The Holidays, remains everyone’s favorite holiday party record and will be re-issued this year worldwide. We would be happy to include any announcement of a Fender Jazzmaster Davie Allan Signature Edition in the massive publicity we have planned for the holiday release, and would lend our considerable publicity machine to your efforts. Have your head of marketing contact my executive assistant Nicole Barsalona for any assistance we can give you.

Solidarity,

Little Steven Van Zandt

Fender's inattention to Davie Allan is an amazing oversight on Fender's part. Davie Allan is the premier Jazzmaster player. His sound is unique. His contribution to music great.
