Gull Darn It!  Having squirreled away around $1,400 from my summer gigs, I'm debating my Christmas present to myself.  Of course it will be a guitar (duh!) ... but which guitar?Once again, my Seagull GAS becomes problematic.I'd love the opportunity to own a Seagull Artist Studio with its wide 1.8 inch nut, rich ebony fingerboard and bridge, lovely Sitka spruce top, and beautiful solid rosewood sides and back.  If a brand new one was sitting in my lap right now, I'd almost certainly pull the…See More

Day 16: The Banjo Killer slays again!

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!

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.
