Our 30th anniversary is a reminder to me that there is no substitute for hard work, perseverance and a great team.  I was a 9 year old kid when this photo was taken.  My parents have worked so hard to build Wildwood into what it now is.  I remember when my Dad taught guitar lessons […]

Recently I decided to “up the ante” as it were and pick up a better acoustic guitar. I have always loved my Taylor 100 Series; it will remain one of my favorite instruments of all time. Mostly because of the memories it has helped me create. All the same, I have been playing guitar for […]
