In the summer of 2017 we drove up to Fort Bragg to visit my old guitar teacher and also visit his neighbor and esteemed luthier, Brian Burns, from whom I bought this guitar. His website needed some video content and I supplied it, playing and discussing with him the six guitars he had built in his shop. The idea was to play some music that could demonstrate and show off the exceptional qualities of his guitars and what made each one unique.
