"I purchased five Homespun videos last week. All were taught by Jim Weider. Without any doubt they are the finest and most informative videos I've ever seen. Keep up the great work." -- Russ Howard
"Just a quick note to let you know that Jim Weider and the video blew me away. I've been playing Fenders for 35 years, and it was great to see an array of vintage instruments being played by a top notch guitarist, and to be quite frank I picked up a thing or two, and just about blew the windows out of the house playing along with Jim on my vintage 78 Tele. Great products and I will be coming back." -- Ernie Koumpis
