I want me one of those

Blog-friend JES, in his regular Wednesday treat, The Midweek Music Break, this week introduced me to Montreal-based folk band The Barr Brothers.

Particularly fascinating was one of the links he provided to an item in Guitar World about this remarkable guitar, specially made for Brad Barr by the custom guitar shop Hobo Nation out of a vintage 1940s metal fishing tackle box. The sound is ravishing. Check it out.  (Dear Santa...)

[Brad mentions in the Guitar Player interview that the guitar was commissioned for him by an ex-girlfriend. I don't think you're supposed to break up with the ones who get you presents like that, Brad.]
