A few things we liked about the 1970s:
1. Tony Rice’s entire recorded output. By combining a sophisticated harmonic vocabulary with an adventurous and fleet-fingered approach to improvisation, he played a huge role in revitalizing bluegrass and inspired scores of guitarists to go back to the woodshed.
2. The Rockford Files. James Garner’s wise-cracking private eye lived in a trailer, ate tacos for breakfast, struggled to pay his bills, and drove a cool gold Firebird. Other than the last part, we can relate.
3. This 1972 Martin D-35. Other than a a ding, an inch or two long in the back that our in-house luthier assures us that it's not a crack (it doesn't follow the wood grain), and that it poses no issues to the health of the instrument (see photo), it’s in very good condition, sounds great (big and boisterous, with lots of headroom), and proudly sports newly polished frets.
In sum, this is the ideal guitar on which to woodshed Tony Rice licks while watching the entire run of The Rockford Files on Hulu. Your personal time machine back to a simpler time and a lot cheaper than a vintage Pontiac Firebird!
