Invest Your Coffee Money Into Music for Your Kid...

THE Reason to Shop for Wooden Instruments Locally
It turns out no. Not all of them anyway. Or that's what Keith claimed. In Shine a Light, he said that he doesn't get all these cats who have whole trucks full of guitars. He only has a few guitars and doesn't get a new one very often. He prefers, he said, getting his older ones repaired. There's a reason he likes these guitars.
