The Boostercaster Guitar has been selected to be featured in “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World,” the traveling exhibition of The National GUITAR Museum!
This guitar was found under a hidden panel in the floor of a former mental sanitarium being demolished in Weedle, Louisiana. It was wrapped tightly in oil cloth and string. There was also a note. It said “Better to just put it back, but I know you won’t. Do not touch booster while playing.” What can I say … I haven’t!
