Performer Bling - Thanks Marty Leach
« on: September 06, 2013, 12:46:11 PM »
So I contacted Brother Marty and asked if he could make me a special inlay handle for my new brick red performer. Well, Marty not only said yes but also quickly sent me an approval drawing and 5 days later........BAM..... 8)   Marty made me a beautiful maple handle with bubinga inlay on both sides.... :) So what sets off a new performer better than a custom Marty Leach handle?.......................NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!

I prefer the originals, but those Marty Leach handles are SO WELL MADE, and that one looks simply awesome, bluesman. 
Still in search of:  Blue Imperial , MTH or wood.

Yes, I do love Brian's handles on the older models which had the wood. But Marty's handles really dress up a new rigs and look so much better than the originals, it just makes you want to cook. In any event new handles are the bomb.

I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

Both of them are great craftsmen and both styles suit a market and a purpose. I would absolutely pimp one of these on a kettle.

Very sharp addition you have there!  Adds a unique personality the stock stuff doesn't provide. The brick and grey colors work nicely with your landscape.
