Guitar connection with John Hiatt

John Hiatt is one of our great singer songwriters. Here he plays a bit and talks about connecting with his vintage Gibson LG2. Beautiful old guitar.

I understand. Sometimes you meet that guitar that you just have to have. Mine came when I was broke. Luckily I had a friend I could call. I told him “I found this incredible guitar. One of us has to buy it and I don’t have any money” Luckily he bought it, and in a few years, I traded him another guitar for it. It’s a 1937 Gibson HG-00 in maple. When you have a guitar that’s a keeper…well you keep it.

I guess that’s why we started building cabinets. We love guitars, and maybe a few of them will be a little more pristine than they otherwise would have been a few decades from now. Whether you buy one of our cabinets or not..take care of those guitars. They have years more songs just waiting to come out.

Thanks to Fretboard Journal for a wonderful video.
