26 JimR56 1 week ago Not sure how I missed this thread. Interesting to read the comments about shops in San Francisco in the 80's. I didn't get up there very often, but I remember doing a big trade for a 1953 Gibson ES-5 at a shop called Satterlee & Chapin circa 1985. I couldn't even tell you where it was located. The only other shop I remember visiting up there was Real Guitars.The Espanadas have indeed been a favorite option for some blues players for a long time. Anders Lewen in Sweden is a very good example (lots of videos on Youtube).
