Personal History: I have been fascinated with guitars for the last 40 years and have been actively collecting and trading acoustics, electrics, and amplifiers for 35 years. The guitar that lead me down this path was a 1943 D-18. Who knew this would be the enduring guide for a life in music? Presently, I engage in the business in a modest way, but I also play in ‘Albuquerque’s Own Western Swing Band: The Curio Cowboys’. We use vintage and period instruments from my collection and ones I have unearthed for the band’s members. We do have a good time. This is New Mexico’s most ‘Haimish’ Guitar Shop!
