40's Oahu Lap Steel

Here is a little piece of the tone of this 40's Oahu that we are using on the new CD....sounds unbelievable........really......the tone is amazing...


Visiting Bob Rigaud at RIGAUD GUITARS










The man behind the man with the guitar. That would be Bob Rigaud, at RIGAUD GUITARS.
Bob is a long time friend and has been creating these amazing instruments there in the North Carolina.
Personally I am a nut about the sound of a guitar.....each one has it's own thing...personally not being able to put it in words...but you know when a guitar has something.
And it seems that everything that Bob seems to be making has it own unique thing......if you ever get a chance to play one of these gems you will know....cheers Bob
