Where did the guitar come from, how has it evolved and are there any changes that we can expect to see in the future? Steve Scher talks with classical guitarist Steven Novacek; Ron Reed, instrument maker and manager of Dusty Strings Guitar Shop; Gene Nygaard, guitarist and maker of Zero Guitars; and Jay Boone, owner of Emerald City Guitars.</p><p> Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:00:00 +0000 weekday 18677 at http://kuow.org Stephen Tobolowsky Live, Radio Retrospective And History Of Guitars
