Obsessions can get out-of-hand.
As teenagers, we fell under the spell of making music and then, at some point, we happened to experience the magic of hand-made stringed instruments: instruments sculpted by human hands into wonderful works of art. It wasn’t enough that they made the most beautiful sounds – almost playing themselves. They were works of Art on their own terms: sitting quietly to be treasured and admired.
It’s easy to get carried away with objects that somehow become family members and friends – present and participating in some of the best times of our lives.
It’s easy to become obsessed.
A single guitar became a collection. The collection encouraged endless research with ever more to learn. The research brought together others with the same interests and passions. Passion carries with it the desire to share. The desire to share gave birth to a shop. The shop became AcousticMusic.Org.
We have surrounded ourselves with the instrument that we love. They are available to experience and play 5 days a week.
