Every Guitar has a Story to Tell

The goal of GroundGuitar project is to collect those stories and establish the history behind some of the most iconic guitars, as well as to have a chronological list of all the equipment used by a particular guitarist.

GroundGuitar is run by a single person as a hobby, but a great number of stories and information were contrubited by the people like yourself, who share the passion for history, and the excitement of finding things out on their own.

For any inquiries/feedback/questions please feel free to contact me by using the Contact Form (Danko K.)
