Topic: NGD - The Prodigal Returns

After traveling from family member to family member for the past 25 years or so, my Norman ST30 has returned home, to be played once again. I originally bought it in 1979, and it's certainly been around.

An interesting bit about this guitar is that it was made in the late-70's, before Norman Boucher sold his company to the Robert Godin group (which also makes Seagull, Art & Lutherie, LaPatrie, and Simon & Patrick guitars). The top is made of solid Canadian Red Spruce, a sought after species of which the Boucher family still owns one of the largest privately-held stands in the world. The back & sides are solid mahogany, and these woods plus its age gives it a big, powerful yet warm voice.

Welcome home, Norman!
