Guitars ARE irresistible. aren’t they? You started out trying to write about the death of the electric guitar and you end up buying a couple of guitars and refurbishing your old one! Guitar based bands are seemingly over…but once a guitar player, ALWAYS, a guitar player…..until we die. I’ve been fascinated with them since I was a kid, 60 years ago. I remember seeing the newly-released Gibson Firebirds in the early 60’s at Abinante’s Music in Monterey….prettiest thing I’d ever seen! I don’t know if guitars will fade and die as we baby boomers die off but I have a feeling they’ll make a big comeback every few years….and on and on…..forever.
