That's a serial #0009 National in the picture on the left. It belonged to my hero and guitar teacher, John Bowie, who died young when I was 17 and he was 27. It's being packed up after being used on some of the guitar and vocal recordings that were recorded in Capitola, California June 13-17.
Also pictured is my beloved Matt Shimala Costello and the Skunk Works studio where I was joined by Alvino Bennett on drums.
Announcement coming soon about this project helmed by Brian Brinkerhoff and Frank Swart of Need to Know Music .
