(Obviously) Their Fab Curation of Guitars (and Audio)
Swee Lee Music’s Managing Director and the brains behind BandLab, Kuok Meng Ru takes pride in the retail collections they bring in. I saw a line of shiny ranges from Fender, Epiphone and MONO (among many others) and it saddens me how I couldn’t play squat! Guitars go from RM500 up to RM300k; they’ve even the best audio boosters from Marshall and Bang & Olufsen to make it all sound phenomenally cool. A section of the store holds the vintage brand Well Played Gear, of which, according to Meng Ru, “Holds a certain emotional attachment, a way of expression,” as the brand celebrates artists from yesteryears.
