I was in Nashville to record with a 52-piece orchestra for Edge of Nowhere in the last month. The music is really shaping up and I'm excited to share it with the world soon.

It may have not been the greatest guitar in the world but it just goes to show that you don't always need a luxury item to get the work done right.
I have a different guitar I use these days on my music, but occasionally I pull this thing off the rack and work to conjure a little magic with it.
