took my new Everett just to show off but rehearsal ended early
and I had time to sit in the corner and play it.
The venue isn't large but will seat a couple hundred and has
a high ceiling. After I had played for a while the band leader
came over and said "I can't believe that little guitar
projects like that. I could hear it on the other side of the
I sounded like it was coming out of the system." I was
actually trying to play softly so not to bother anyone.
Thought you would get a kick out of that.

Beautiful guitar to match

We had a lot of fun. Thanks Bryan.
"To me, a big part of the experience
was getting to make a new friend. It's really obvious that you
care a lot about the guitar and the people.
It feels very personal, and I don't think there are many luthiers
who would put in that kind of heart."

He took the name 'Everett' as his stage name. So, he is not related other than
being related to all of us with the love of killer acoustic music. Be sure to

I must admid: this is not only an instrument - it is a piece of art. Even if you
don't play you have to look at it and discover
little by little those little
treasures you built in.
The instrument is extremely good balanced - no bases
no middle- or hightones prevail or are dominating the sound pattern.

Been a while. I'm sure you remember that night over 20+ years
ago when Pat Buchanan sold me that guitar to give my best friend
Jay at that Night club. How you showed up and surprised us both
with the story of the guitar and how the Indigo Girls were supposed
to have it. And how there is a sister 12 string. For my 50th
Birthday last year he attempted to contact Amy and see if she
still had it. A year and a half passed so he gave up when out
of nowhere Amy Ray E-mailed. She still had the guitar but rarely
plays 12's anymore. She wrote since we knew the importance of
Everett Guitars and we had the sister guitar that she would
sell it to us, after all, it deserves to be played. So the story
is full circle and we have #44 and #45. I learned how to play
on a 12 string and couldn't be happier! The guitar has been
around the world, played thousands of shows and found a gracious
new home. Jay plays his every day still and I can't put my Everett

had my (other guitar) for over 15 years, and over that time
it has opened up very nicely. But it doesn't even hold a candle
to my brand new Everett! When I strum the (other guitar), I
hear 6 notes. When I strum your guitar, it's like there's a
whole choir behind every string. I can't even begin to imagine
what this guitar will sound like in 10 years.
I was playing the guitar, I unfortunately had some stomach discomfort
- it began to turn and rumble down there. I stopped playing
to go to the bathroom and realized that my stomach was fine.
The rumbling was the reverberation of the guitar!
an amazing instrument. I'm just beginning to get to know it,
and I'm excited about the journey ahead!
as usual, my new Everett completely blew my clothes off! Here I sit in my shop,
and panting like a 2 year old dog in a room full of hot
female dogs ...

played before I put it away."
