My Guitar

I have a pretty nice guitar that I bought from my friend Mark maybe 4-5 years ago. He was wanting to put some money down on a piece of land in Ashville, and gosh dangit if they didn’t get that land and live in the house on it part-time.

I have no paperwork for the guitar. There isn’t a lot of information on the thing. I bought a case for it when I got it, so nothing there to say what it is really.

I remember two things from what Mark told me:

I’m essentially blogging this so I have something to remind me any details at all about the thing.

It looks a lot like this. Kinda modeled after the classic Martin D-28. The headstock on it says Yamaha though, so I don’t know if just the body was crafted by Dennis Overton and not the head/neck or what. I paid $5,000 for it, so it’s definitely the most expensive instrument I own. It’s nice and loud and clean and clear and warm, so I’m damn happy with it.

I should take some pictures of it to add to this blog post for posterity.
