ROBERT CHILDS' GUITAR: BEN NICHOLS (Lucero)

My dad built a guitar.
Shortly after finishing it he got really sick.
Now, I try and get people to play the guitar.
You can read the whole story here.

Last week Ben Nichols from Lucero was kind enough to met up with me before their show here in St. Petersburg and play a few songs on my dad’s guitar.

    I can’t imagine the feeling of seeing Ben Nichols play your favorite song on your father’s guitar. As always, all the best to your family.

    This is such a great tribute. What did Woods and Nichols think about the guitar?

    I think this was beautiful on both accounts. I love the guitar tone and with Ben Nichols struming, you can’t go wrong.
