Bob Cox on the Anhinga's Reflection

Mary bought a Ken Miller quilted mahogany dreadnaught for me a couple of years ago. It is far superior to the Martin and Gibson guitars we have had and comparable to the very expensive pre-war Martins owned by a friend who is a collector. The sound is crisp and clear and the volume is exceptional even with light gauge strings. I can easily be heard even playing with several banjos and fiddles! The guitar is very easy to play and frets true up the neck. I couldn't be more pleased.

Mary Z. Cox on Little Star

If you pick up a guitar and it says, “Take me, I’m yours,” then that’s the one for you.---Frank Zappa
There is a chapter in Philip Toshio Sudo’s, Zen Guitar, called “Pick Up Your Guitar.”
Here is a bit of his advice on choosing the perfect guitar for his Zen method.
# Go into the world and find the instrument that’s waiting for you, the one you are meant to play.
# There’s an instrument for everyone.
# What’s important is that when you pick it up, it makes a sound that’s beautiful to you.
# Avoid poor craftsmanship; it’s a sign of a poor spirit.

David Grier in concert - January 15, 2006; hosted by Ken Miller Guitars

David Grier graced a packed house in Tallahassee on Sunday evening with some choice notes and arrangements. There never seems to be enough adjectives to adequately describe his guitar playing and music. My favorite was a medley he did: David started with "America the Beautiful", a gorgeous arrangement. I was wondering what patriotic tune he might choose to follow...then, very much a Grier choice - the Beatles tune "Yesterday". Wow, ya had to have been there. The crowd was spell bound for over two hours as David worked his magic. We very much appreciate David sharing his gift with us.
