Musician of Rock and World
Western Swing and Rockabilly Guitar Picker now located in the Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree, CA. "I’ve been a musician since I was in seventh grade. I played professionally for years in various bands; Big Sandy and the Fly Rite Trio, The Smith’s Ranch Boys, Golden Hill Ramblers and others. When I played full time, I would practice eight hours a day, take my amps apart, put them back together, build my own guitars and spend days looking for vintage equipment to get the sound that I wanted. I guess you can say I was obsessed, and I still am. Having to resort to fabricating my own parts over the years when I couldn’t find them elsewhere, I decided to start “TK Smith” guitars and accessories. We’re now offering Custom Builds, Pickups, Pickguard Inlay, Set Up, Modification and an array of guitar parts that I make and recommend. Once this bug bites, you’re infected for life!"
