"Wielding his unmistakable 1935 Epiphone archtop, Rawlings showcases a little of that improvisational, single-note-driven playing, riffing off his recent sophomore release as Dave Rawlings Machine, Nashville Obsolete. The songwriter is almost never seen with any other instrument, and, as it turns out, it wasn't a purchase from some luxury vintage guitar shop — it was scavenged from the dirt of a friend's attic."I just picked it up. It was filthy, and it didn't have strings," he says. "You could just see the shape of it under the sawdust." Rawlings took it home, tuned it up and brought it to the recording session for the first Gillian Welch record, Revival. It was the last instrument he tried in the studio, but he's barely put it down since. "As soon as I heard it through the microphone and through the speakers I was like, 'I love this guitar.'"" - Rawlings in an Interview for D'Addario's Guitar Power series which was also featured on Rollingstone.com (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/see-dave-rawlings-show-off-his-scavenged-vintage-guitar-in-new-series-20151014#ixzz42mrlt79U)
