"Taylor Guitars master luthier Andy Powers reflects on the creative journey of building a guitar and shares some of his favorite parts of the process: a moment of inspiration, applying the careful strokes that gradually coax an instrument to life, and the satisfaction of playing a completed guitar's first notes. He also shares what he ultimately hopes to bring to the playing experience."

    So, guitars are like girlfriends; there's alway a couple you wish you'd never let get away. My guitar was a cherry Gibson ES355TD. As I verified the serial number with Gibson, it was a second year of issue guitar with the solid bridge. She was a beauty! My bass in this category was a pre-CBS Fender Jazz Bass with rosewood neck in black w/white pick guard. I sold everything off when I realized I wasn't going to be the next Paul McCartney. I wish I'd kept that Acoustic 350/301 (or whatever the exact numbers were) combo bass amp, too. Bummer for me.

      Sorry to hear about that Jake. That 355 would be worth having today. Many famous players have used them over the years. Most notably, Chuck Berry and B.B. King.
