The Stella Guitar



Curly was caught red-pawed trying to make music on my autoharp so I decided to let him buy a Stella guitar from an online auction. I fronted him a loan for thirty six bucks. Do you think he paid too much? While I was watching the Bob Dylan special last night,I heard at least one Stella being played in Bob's early days. It has a distinctive sound which is primitive yet buoyant. This one is a sunburst and it is small like a parlor guitar. It has the word "Pico" carved in it, so Curly thinks it belonged to an itinerant Mexican musician who played in street fairs and restaurants in the sixties in Tijuana.
