Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument

Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument - Allen St John

Clapton's Guitar: Watching Wayne Henderson Build the Perfect Instrument

This is a close-up and fascinating look at guitar master Wayne Henderson as he turns a few pieces of wood into a work of musical art using little more than a whittling knife.
New York Times bestselling author Allen St. John started off looking for the world's greatest guitar, but what he found instead was the world's greatest guitar builder.

Living and working in Rugby, Virginia (population 7), retired rural mail carrier Wayne Henderson is a true American original, making America's finest instruments using little more than a pile of good wood and a sharp whittling knife. There's a 10-year waiting list for Henderson's heirloom acoustic guitars--and even a musical legend like Eric Clapton must wait his turn. Partly out of self-interest, St. John prods Henderson into finally building Clapton's guitar, and soon we get to pull up a dusty stool and watch this Stradivari in glue-stained blue jeans work his magic. The story that ensues will captivate you with its portrait of a world where craftsmanship counts more than commerce, and time is measured by old jokes, old-time music, and homemade lemon pies shared by good friends.
