Marty Lanham has been a figure in the Nashville music scene for more than 40 years. Since relocating there from his native California in 1972, he has worked in the repair department of the legendary Gruhn Guitars on Broadway, helped launch the notorious Station Inn, and started his own company, Nashville Guitar Company, to build hand made steel string guitars of the highest quality.
Lanham is also on the first call list for owners of valuable vintage guitars, in Music City and throughout the southeastern US, and created a video for AcuTab, Get To Know Your Acoustic Guitar.
Now Marty has been featured in a recent edition of This Week In Louisiana Agriculture, a television program from the Louisiana Farm Bureau, that airs across the state on 18 affiliates, and throughout the US on RFD-TV.
TWILA’s Avery Davidson visited the NGC shop just outside of Nashville, where Lanham demonstrated and discussed some of techniques that he has learned over the course of a lifetime’s focus on guitar building.
