Great interview with guitar expert Richard Johnston

Here’s a very comprehensive, interesting and informative interview with vintage guitar restorer, author, and “Antiques Roadshow” appraiser Richard Johnston. Not only does he talk about the histories of Gibson and Martin, he also comments on the effects that age and different types of wood have on the sound of a guitar. He certainly knows his stuff, he has a fantastic guitar business Gryphon Stringed Instruments here.
