Bozeman, Montana + Gibson Guitar

Jeremy the Tour Guide

We had a great time in Bozeman, Montana on Thursday. We stopped by the Gibson Guitar factory to see if we might look around, and while they only do tours on Wednesdays, a nice employee named Jeremy took us through the factory anyway. We saw how a guitar gets made starting from a flat piece of wood all the way to the final cased up instrument.

And THEN to make a great day greater, our good friend and amazing musician/writer Walt Wilkins (who lives in Austin) just happened to be in the neighborhood and came to the gig at Peach Street Studios. That never happens a few thousand miles from home…except in Bozeman. The Live From the Divide series they do there, run by Jackie and Jason Wickens, is a gem of venue and atmosphere.
