The moment we've been waiting for: On Oct. 28, 2012, Bryan Sutton debuted the restored the Banjo…Continue
This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today!

I have always wanted an Alvarez Acoustic. Played one once in Petersburg, Va. and fell in love with this very big sounding dreadnought which was very articulate and clean. I Always wanted one of the…Continue
I learned how to play on an old nylon string that my mom owned when I was 14 but the first steel string guitar I ever owned was an Ovation. I think it was a Balladeer but I honestly don't know for…Continue
