You. Us. Beautiful music. Thanks for making that possible in 2010, and here is to even better moments in 2011.
In your inbox today is the very infrequent, informative info you have asked for from us.
(So we are clear, our policy on email addresses is no one gets anything from us about you -- ever.)
What’s making us prattle on at cocktail parties in Nashville:
We have just become an official Franklin Dealer. Not familiar with this amazing builder?
Franklin guitars are the work of master Luthier Nick Kukich, who has more than 35 years of building experience behind him. His guitars are a unique blend of contemporary and traditional sound, (we know . . . hard to imagine . . . but go on our site and listen to the sound samples of his Brazilian that we in stock and listed).
At the shop here, we love his clean lines and understated elegance. Resonant, great feel to the player; he creates an instrument that is applicable in any number of musical situations. If you love both sides of the tone coin, Nick builds a guitar you will love.
In addition to the Brazilian we have in stock, we are receiving a Koa Jumbo from him shortly. Watch for that video and sound samples.
And as you know, we believe in giving back. (We call it depositing in the Bank of Good. We have given 10% of our revenue to charity for years now.)
Robin Weber, the Owner of Guitar Gallery, started a not-for-profit organization that supplies our military with something to offset the stress and boredom they face day in, day out. Guitars 4 Troops caught the attention of ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, and more than a few donors this month.
As featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, Army Sgt. Bob Persch had always wanted to learn how to play guitar. When he was was deployed to Afghanistan, he couldn't find a guitar to play. His desire to play and help others, led Robin Weber at Guitar Gallery in White House, Tenn., to begin donating a guitar a week to U.S. troops in Iraq or Afghanistan . . . click here for that interview http://www.npr.org/2011/01/06/132699312/Guitars-Donated-To-U-S-Troops-In-Afghanistan#
In short, as these Troops receive guitars, instructional materials, etc., those of you who have purchased from us are being honored. It is through your patronage that they receive these instruments and materials. We thank you for that, and they do as well.
