Wood for Sammy's guitar. Back and sides of Padauk which has a natural "red" hue to it.
In 2010 I built a guitar for Sammy. It was presented at his concert at the Big Fresno Fair on October 10th, 2010. What a dream come true! Sammy's music has been the soundtrack of my life since I heard the first Montrose album in the mid 1970's as a teenager. Sammy is also one of my favorite guitar players too. It was such an honor to meet Sammy, Carter, Bling Bling, Mona, Vic, Bro, and local Bill Church! Thanks Sammy! Hope you are enjoying the guitar!
