I have just uploaded the first episode of a new series "Iconic Instruments" to my YouTube channel, and it is fitting that the guitar in question is a vintage Martin dreadnought that will be immediately familiar to fans of the late Isaac Guillory.
This is "Junior" made by Martin in 1969 in the final weeks of Brazilian Rosewood and it was Isaac's main guitar for much of his career. The next time you see this extraordinary instrument it will be in the hands of Isaac's son Easton Guillory, an amazing player in his own right. I can't wait to hear what he gets up to with it!
Iconic Instruments is one of several new series that I have been filming for my YouTube channel and I look forward to sharing the results with you in the months to come. If you haven't already done so then please do subscribe to my YouTube channel so that you don't miss an episode.
If you've followed me over the years you'll know how important Isaac's music was for me growing up. He was an extraordinary musician and a generous mentor.
I hope you'll enjoy this video. It meant a great deal to me.
