    This tune is about bending wood over a hot iron. The guitar featured in the slide show was built for Johnny Depp and the lead guitar part was played with this guitar before I sent it off to him. The guitar is also featured in the documentary film “Do It For Johnny” released in 2008. Also, the only electric instruments on this track are the bass and the lead guitar. Everything else is mic’d up acoustic instruments but it still has a very electric feel.

    Sipping my coffee at the recording desk with that running in the background while I work on amp restorations. Perfect. You got down to the Henley of the matter.

    Love the background. You should meet by friend here in CA. He makes the man-jewels Depp and his band wear.

    Very nice.....


    Did you have anything to do with
    A tune called Gangstagrass
    The theme for a television series called "justified"
    There is a similarity...

    Cool looking guitar! Reminds me of the one the guy from Drive By Truckers plays. Do you build it too?
    Love the solo in this song.

    Yes, I built the guitars Cooley plays. We call that model the “Cooleycaster”. I built the one Cooley plays at the same time I built the Johnny Depp guitar. They are very similar.
