True Temperament creator Anders Thidell dead, 55 years old
 It is with deep sorrow in our hearts that we announce the passing of our dear friend, inventor and mentor Anders Thidell. He died July 10, in Stockholm after a long battle with cancer, 55 years old.
His invention of the revolutionary True Temperament fretting system is today considered by many guitar experts and world renowned guitarists to be the greatest improvement that has happened to the guitar in over 200 years. His legacy will live on in True Temperaments´s future projects forever and will influence the guitar's development for many years to come, that's for sure.

R.I.P. and thank you, Anders. You were brilliant, a true genius! –  will never be forgotten and always have a place in our hearts.
