One of America's most iconic guitar makers has suffered a major blow due the Camp fire in northern California. His home was in Paradise, CA and more than 90% of the homes there are destroyed.
Sad
after making guitars since 1959, everything is lost, templates, tools, everything.

Those fire storms are beyond hellish. My heart goes out to everyone dealing with them.

It wasn't long ago that Ft. McMurray, Alberta Canada suffered a similar devastation albeit on a smaller scale.

The loss of that guitar making history is indeed a loss to all who love the instrument.

Wow!! At least Wayne and his family are safe! I know the loss of the guitars and other memoribilia is tragic, but in the end, that is only stuff...
