Since a kid I have always loved guitars- the sound, the shape, the smell. They are each small pieces of art in themselves, but still only a tool to make music. Vintage guitars are especially interesting to me- and all have a unique story to tell. Guitars are my passion, and I enjoy sharing them with people.
