Savannah

This musical artifact on display is believed to have been baptized as “Savannah” by Blind Willie Mctell; it is an embodiment of a music history. Its conception is a mystery, some say it was handcrafted by the nails of the devil during medieval times, others say by a bored bluesman in the Virginian swamps on a night of utter silence, others say it is the physical manifestation of rebellious music that appeared out of thin air. It’s believed that its first notable citing was with Robert Johnson, and though after his death he wanted the Guitar burned, it survived the cremation. What is certain is that it was hidden away from the world by a priest in the 50’s that feared its power. This priest died shortly afterwards from a falling anvil. But soon the Guitar reemerged, in 1960’s America being exchanged from one guitarist to another, each dying, but each achieving near godly status while playing it, until it disappeared once more. Then Punk arrived…

With the arrival of Punk the Guitar resurfaced but its powers were tamed, it could no longer claim lives but its music was chocked by the aggression. It now lies here Defeated by the Powers of Hardcore Punk.
