A Guitar Geek Must?
Next, you’ll get a sneak peek at “The Devil is in It,” a first-edition book that anyone who cares about acoustic guitars needs to have.
From the content to the actual packaging, this book is a must-have for any guitar geek.
The book was written by John Stubbings and details the fascinating musical and social history of the guitar.
Whether you have been playing for a few days or enough for a few lifetimes, be sure to check out this unique book!
Tommy Emmanuel’s Guitar?
Brendan Smyth from Heartbreaker Guitars in Las Vegas will be showing off Tommy Emmanuel’s CO-3 Larrivee guitar.
It doesn’t have the bling that Tommy’s guitar has, but it is built with the same tonewoods, body symmetry, and binding.
One of my favorite parts about this guitar is the price range: it’s not out of the realm of possibility for me to own this guitar!
The Dead Tongues
Last but not least, you’ll get to hear The Dead Tongues, an incredible musical project that was recommended to me by Mandolin Orange.
The Dead Tongues is a collaborative project headed by musician Ryan Gustafson.
Covering everything from folk, bluegrass, and deeper roots music, The Dead Tongues is a group you don’t want to miss.
