Music is an important part of my life. This guitar represents a part of me. How I got this guitar was pretty interesting.
There was a music store that was having a liquidation sale and was getting rid of all their inventory. So, just like a magnet to metal, I was attracted to the frenzy.
I was looking to buy my first guitar and saw a bunch on the wall display. They were okay, but then there was the acoustic room in the back. If I were to walk out with a guitar purchase, this room would have it.
I walked in and sat down, playing a couple of guitars. Gibson and others, but nothing really resonated with me. I picked up this beauty. The body was smaller than the usual big body guitars, but when I began strumming chord after chord, I was completely amazed. The sound was incredible, so much so, that people in the room stopped in the middle of their guitar shopping and listened. One patron commented, "That's a really nice sounding guitar!" And I responded, "I know, right?"
I never let go of this Martin since...😄
I used this guitar in a few recordings, including the song I wrote for my wife on our wedding day. Hopefully, one day, my kids will take on this instrument as well.
