Acoustic Guitars are our passion
In the early 1970’s I purchased my first acoustic guitar, I was 8 years old. It was from a local variety store called Treasure Island. I actually went there one day for a little green turtle in a clear plastic dish complete with a mini palm tree. Somehow I got distracted on the way by their wonderful acoustic guitar selection, (I think they had 5 or 6), so the turtle had to wait. Since I could afford this guitar it wasn’t very expensive or high-end, but it was just enough to get me started. The aroma of the wood was so unique and pleasant, practicing and playing that gem was the best. It even came with an 8 page booklet on how to master the guitar. Boy, was I naive! It turned out to be a very exciting experience and introduced me to acoustic guitars, although it broke & fell apart within a year.
Now some 40 years later, to own a fine handcrafted acoustic guitar, play it and admire the beautiful tone and aroma of master grade tonewoods is one of life’s greatest joys. To put your fingers to the strings and hear and feel the rich, lush, warm tones that resonate from within brings a sense of contentment that is … well, almost indescribable.
When I add another exceptional acoustic guitar to the showroom, I can’t help but wonder who the new owner will be, where the guitar will end up and what kind of story it will have over it’s lifetime.
