It’s true. I love old guitars. Anything before 1920 catches my eye, and my ear. I’ve been fortunate to have had many opportunities to restore these old parlor guitars from yesteryear for my clients at Rosewood. The oldest ones I’ve brought back to life hail from the 1850’s. Today I spent some quality time with my own instrument. It’s needed some tuning up and fretwork for a while now, but I never seem to get enough time to fix up my own guitars. Today, I made the time because I’ve been craving the sweet voice of this 1880’s Lyon and Healy Lakeside. It was worth it!
- I really enjoy #justintonation , but my job usually requires me to squeeze into #equaltemperament when it comes to tuning. Getting the Hz to match up on this mandolin this morning. Counting my cents!
- The @thesnootyfoxteashop is one of my favorite Duluth businesses. Apart from their great tea and kombucha, they have another specialty: caring about their customers. I always feel a little lighter after a visit. Thanks, Snooty 🦊
