guitares en train de secher....



Nashville flood update, May 6:
Thank you for the many emails and phone calls asking about the status of Gruhn Guitars. We were very fortunate to have come through the flood with no damage whatsoever. The Cumberland River came up Broadway as far as Second Avenue, two blocks east of the store, and it also flooded an area a half-block south of the store. Many downtown businesses have no power, but our power and phones are still on and we remain open for business.
After closing Monday I spent over an hour walking around the neighborhood and going over the Woodland Street bridge to observe the flooding. I've never seen anything this bad before. The underground parking where our employees park is totally flooded. The basement of the Symphony Hall is underwater, and they lost two Steinway concert grand pianos, among other instruments. The floor of the arena where the Nashville Predators hockey team plays is under 2 feet of water and the dressing rooms are below that level so they are completely flooded. The field at the Titans' stadium is underwater, as are all the dressing rooms. The Sound Check storage facility used by Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and numerous others is flooded to the roof and hundreds of instruments have been destroyed. The Gibson factory is flooded.

We are shaken by the experience and profoundly saddened by the loss suffered by so many people, as well as the loss of so many fine musical instruments, many of which are irreplaceable.

- George Gruhn

"But in May, the rains came and Soundcheck flooded, and Chambers couldn’t gather his jewels until they had been underwater for days. And now Pete Townshend’s guitar from The Who’s Quadrophenia tour, Jimi Hendrix’s 1966 Fender, the drums Kenny Buttrey used on Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold,” the bass Lightning Chance used for Hank Williams’ final recording sessions and hundreds of other fine things are irrevocably altered, their futures uncertain.

“You don’t pick up the phone and go, ‘I’d like to order another of the Tommy Tedesco guitar that he played on the M*A*S*H theme,’ or, ‘I’d like another of the bass that Joe Osborne used on “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and all The Mamas & The Papas records: The one signed on the back by Karen Carpenter and Neil Young and Paul Simon,’”

“These instruments are the holy grails of the musicians,” said Country Music Hall of Famer Harold Bradley. “If they disappear, we’ll lost a tremendous amount of our history.”

In some moments, Chambers is as buoyed by the salvaging of a golf club that Chet Atkins used as a walking stick as he is dismayed at some of his lost guitars. And then he looks over at the sitar used by California session man Mike Deasy, with wood that must have popped like firecrackers, audible even underwater. He grows emotional each time he shifts attention to two basses once played by Nashville great Lightning Chance — the one he played on the Grand Ole Opry stage and the one that held the low end for Patsy Cline’s “Walking After Midnight” and thousands of other songs — wincing at the yawning wounds in the wood.

Even the instruments that can be restored are now different, and lesser. Instruments are to be weathered by hand, not by water, and fixing water damage is usually like sanding and refinishing antique furniture. You wind up with something perhaps usable but less authentic. And it’ll be impossible to tell what is salvageable for months. Much of it looks worse each day, even as it slowly dries.

The binding from Charlie McCoy’s bass crumbled and stuck like glass in Chambers hand as he picked it up and mentioned its role in Bob Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay.” The drums Gene Chrisman used on “Son Of A Preacher Man” are a wreck, as are the bass guitars Garry W. Tallent used on Bruce Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and “Born in the U.S.A.” Water pressure violently ripped the bridges from the bodies of Glen Campbell’s Ovation and Jerry Reed’s Fender."
