This guitar is what launched my career in guitar building. One evening back in 1992, I attended a local open mic and brought my guitar. This was the first guitar I ever built. After playing my set I was approached by a gentleman that asked me what kind of guitar I was playing I went onto to tell him that this is the guitar that I built.
He was very impressed with the sound of my guitar and asked me to build him one just like it. I told him I never made a guitar on commission however, I would be happy to. The rest is history and that is how I got my start. This guitar remains in my personal collection.
Thank You! For considering Gordon Guitar's
