TVZ & FB The Guitar Trade

Townes Van Zandt & Frenchy Burrito - The Guitar Trade.

While Frenchy was visiting Townes Van Zandt at his cabin in Franklin TN outside of Nashville Townes liked FB’s guitar so much he wanted to do a trade – So, Frenchy swapped his Gibson B-25 for Townes’ Martin D-45 (The Martin had a warped neck) That didn’t seem like such a fair trade so they swapped guitars back before Frenchy headed back to Pittsburgh…

You know what they say: “The dust that Pancho bit down south ended up in Lefty’s mouth”
