I was touring the Drew St. area in Clearwater one day, when I noticed this storefront shop on the south side of Drew Street. What a surprise to see something as uncommon as a guitar maker shop in this little Clearwater neighborhood! The name on the shop window is Augustino Guitars. Searching on the internet, I found the website for Augustino LoPrinzi Guitars & Ukuleles.
One of the things I love about publishing this blog is the way it brings my attention to things and places and people I might never notice otherwise. I had no idea we have a world class guitar and ukulele maker right here in Clearwater! And I didn't know that there is such a thing as the Tampa Bay Ukulele Society, and that they are having a Tampa Bay Ukulele Getaway soon, November 5-7, 2010! The Getaway is being held at the Lake Tarpon Resort. Very nice!
Yeah, so, who knew?
