A few pounds of mahogany, maple and rosewood; some metal and plastic bits; a handful of simple electronic parts; a couple of ounces of nitrocellulose finish; several feet of steel wire. There are quite a few gizmos a clever, capable craftsman could bring to life with these basic materials. In partnership with noted Carmel resident, film composer and avid guitar collector Mark Mancina, Michael opened the doors of his Carmel-by-the-Sea shop. As with any collectible in this price range, counterfeits abound. It takes a sharp eye, honed over years of examining instruments to spot the subtle nuances that separate the authentic from the ersatz. So, naturally, in this business, trust and relationships are everything. There are forgeries and fakes out there. Those ar tisans believed that what they were making should last a lifetime.

So I came up to Carmel to visit my folks and go to the car races with my pop. I made a stop at Rumble Seat Music this morning to press my nose against the window and drool, and was saddened to see they have vacated the building and are no more. I know they were opening a Nashville location so maybe they moved their entire inventory there. For all you near Nashville, check them out. Great guys, great instruments, great memories. Sad to see them gone and wish them nothing but the best. I was in Carmel this week to visit my son and wife and go to the Concours de Elegance car show.
