Carolan Guitar (2016)

Every guitar tells a story, from the tonewoods that form it, to the craft of its making, to the players that own it, to the places it visits, and to the many songs that it sings. This blog tells the story of a unique guitar; one that has been created with the express purpose of capturing and telling its own life history.
