“I put an offer on baby Clair and they accepted it.” An 11 word email, and my dad added another guitar to his collection. A few months ago, my dad asked me to come and photograph the cases for Acoustic Remedy, a Wisconson based company that specializes in free-standing instrument displays that incorporates humidity control as it’s primary function. Amazing. I also got a few close ups of my dad’s collection.
Well he’s hollow in the middle from the shape that he’s in.
He’s either filled up with music or locked in his shell again.
And it takes some fine tuning to make him come around,
But he’s a huge piece of me, and I’ll never put him down.
