Rick Kelly Makes Guitars From the 'Bones of Old New York'
In Greenwich Village,
wedged between a custom flooring store
and an Asian tapas restaurant,
the red brick and glass facade of
Carmine Street Guitars features
a subtle neon guitar-shaped light
in the window and Kelly in gold lettering
on the bottom left corner of the glass.
But this is no ordinary guitar shop.
Kelly's one-of-a-kind, handmade
electric guitars are literally built
from the foundations of the city
and have been played by some of
rock and roll's biggest stars.
