In search of ......


Recommended Posts

I've been gone for awhile. We traveled through much of Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri(Branson) Oklahoma, and Louisiana. We stopped at every music shop we saw and a lot of antique stores. Not one authenic (or even nearly so) Strad, . Lots and lots and lots of guitar & drums! I did buy one Stainer (copy) in very poor shape (graduated to paper thin top). Very nice old luthier in Ok. I paid too much but, he was such a pleasant gentlemen that it was worth a few extra $$'s. One old shop owner shared with me that about 30 years ago buyers from Chicago and New York came throughout the Ozarks buying every old 'fiddle' that was worth playin'.

I did get to go by one Maestroneter's shop. It was just a pleasure. I hope ya'll that are in areas with many luthiers nearby know how lucky you are. Only bad thing was now my wife is putting the pressure on me to 'organize' my shop.

My recomendation is don't pass up a chance to visit another Maestronet'r.


P.S. Even stopped by International Luthier Supply.
