Default Celebrating a 2 yr. Cornerstone anniversary!

It was exactly 2 yrs. ago, after the 2009 Healdsburg Festival, that I took possession of my Cornerstone SJ, where it had been put on display for that festival with two other guitars made by Peter Marreiros. I am so fond and thankful for this special instrument, which has blossomed and opened up wonderfully (build thread). The fact that it was part of the festival that year only added to my custom guitar commission experience.

Reading through the threads for custom builds for the 2011 Healdsburg show reminded me of my experience and I certainly hope that others who receive their guitars after this event have the same great time with their new instruments!

I've always loved the look of Cornerstone guitars but never had the good fortune to play one. Wasn't Peter supposed to be at Healdsburg this year? I looked for his table but didn't find it. Maybe I'm losing it?

I don't think he attended this year. If you make it down to SoCal, you should find time to visit his shop, I highly recommend it!

Unfortunately this year it wasn't in the cards for me. Way too busy and no guitars to take.... Next time.

But do stay tuned, I have a few things in the works...

Thanks guys,

Peter, glad to hear from you! As a non-attendee, I had been looking forward to seeing pictures of your HGF guitars! Hope things are well and we'll look forward to seeing what you come up with next!

Best,

Phil

tpp - I'm eagerly awaiting my Mayes 00 LS/mahogany which was shown by John at HGF this year, and which is expected to be delivered to his shop today. He'll check it over for any travel issues, and I'll pick it up Friday!

Here's a pic of John Cotten playing it at Healdsburg..
