In this episode of Guitar Picks, if it weren't for a 1954 Les Paul, you may have never even heard of Gordie Johnson. That guitar turned him from a jazz musician to a rock and roller. Meanwhile Bill Abel can take a broom pole, some string, and a cigar box and make a mean instrument. Bill educates us on the history of these guitars and the beautiful sounds they can make. And Mark Rashotte enjoys his role as owner as the Empire Theatre in Belleville Ontario. It allows him to justify his collection of 70 odd guitars. But one guitar holds a special place in that collection: A very rare Rick Turner Model One.
