Artistic tools and toys for musical people: guitars from Shreveport Music and lessons from the Guitar Studio
Gardner loves Martin guitars. For the SptBlog Xmas recommendation (since when have we been so blatantly commercial?) he chose a Martin D-28 Herringbone. As he plucked the D-28, a full-bodied sound emanated from the spruce body and filled the area. In his studio Gardner plays a Steve Howe model (the British group Yes) Martin acoustic.
While the Martin D-28 is about $2000, there are numerous less-costly, rich-sounding and easy-playing guitars in the store, located at 1815 East 70th.
Lessons from someone as caring as Gardner and Wilder are also highly recommended.
