Comments
The nut is one of the smaller parts of the guitar, but it has a big impact on how an instrument sounds and plays.

Sometimes, great players go too unnoticed — even in the Internet age. Johnny A is one.

Comments
Beginning with Boston’s mega-selling 1976 self-titled debut, the pioneering guitarist has always insisted on creative autonomy, hunkering down in his basement studio, often for years, to craft the songs, sounds and arrangements that meet his exacting standards.
