Sound of Music

Any good wood-related story is music to a lumberman’s ears – even if it’s about very old, recycled lumber. Such is this film clip of Kelly Guitars that caught our eye, and ear, with details of the creation of guitars fashioned from recycled, air-dried timber. Their “Bowery Guitars” are built from old-growth, white pine timbers barged down the Hudson River 200 years ago from the great virgin forests of the Adirondacks in upstate New York. It’s a story about reclaimed lumber from New York City buildings framed in the 1800’s, now enjoying an amazing afterlife of perfection and harmony as a solid wood Kelly Guitar.
