The Head Act
The other day I was at the Furtados in Lajpat Nagar. I saw a collection of Taylors, all acoustic; and all the pieces look perfectly fine except one thing. The lowest price in the lot was a mahogany-top piece, priced INR43K. The shop manager, a friend, he said there is a discount of 4K. But no thanks! There was also a spruce-top piece at 87K. Why the hell are they so expensive? Nevertheless it was a treat to check each one of them, clubbed in a circular hanger. It was not hard to find the superb sound quality in those guitars—one level above the normal. Then I saw the immaculate heads that looked similar in all the pieces and finally I got this pic when I reached home!
