Fraulini 12-string auction to benefit Paul Geremia
« on: September 05, 2015, 11:40:18 PM »
Elijah Wald says (and I concur): If you love country blues and ever wanted a 12-string guitar, you can't do better than this--master luthier Todd Cambio has made a second copy of Paul Geremia's Tonk Brothers guitar (the model Willie McTell played), which he is auctioning to benefit Paul, who suffered a debilitating stroke last year.
The cause is great, the guitar is great...
