This Is The Austinite Willie Nelson Calls When His Guitar Breaks

No one tells a story better than those behind the scenes of the music industry, and the Austin American Statesman has a great one for you today.

The beautifully shot video of Mark Erlewine gives a brief look into his 47 year run repairing and building guitars. As the owner of the beloved Austin institution, Erlewine Guitars, he’s met and worked for some of music’s greats. Of course our favorite story was the one about him meeting Willie Nelson and working on his guitar, Trigger.
