Refret for my #1 guitar Barbara

Brad Thompson's guitar Barbara

I recently had some major work done on my #1 guitar Barbara. I have Mark Cigainero out of Fort Worth, TX do all my work – he’s really one of the best. Refret, new saddle and nut and we planed the fretboard so it plays totally different now!

I named my guitar as a nod to Michael Hedges (1953-1997). His primary live guitar was a Martin he named Barbara because she had been in so many bars.
