For all of you reading this blog who are not from the US, we just celebrated our Thanksgiving Holiday. Part of this holiday tradition is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade which takes place in NYC. This year, the Colombian singer Juanes was a featured performer. Juanes has 17 Latin Grammys, more than any other artist. Juanes played his new Sadowsky guitar which we sent him about two weeks ago! Juanes has sponsored several concerts under the banner “Peace Without Borders”. This guitar has “Paz Sin Fronteras” written on the headstock. The guitar was commissioned by Juan Luis Guerra as a gift to Juanes.
I received the following email from Juanes on 12/3/10:
Hey man !
You have no idea how happy I am now with this guitar, in the first place because who gave me the guitar is the one and only Juan Luis Guerra, mi friend, mi angel, mi all brother., and in second place, because it is the most beautiful guitar I”ve ever tried, in perfect tune, incredible variety of sounds , sweet and hot ! Man, you are the best ! I put a name on the guitar .. ” la guitar de Dios”
