This Week on Seattle Sounds: Josh Kerns and I Discover the $300,000 Guitar (and $89 Ukulele) In Pioneer Square. Listen Tonight at 9, and Sunday at 3 p.m. on 97.3 KIRO FM

Carlos Santana is a big fan of Emerald City Guitars.
Josh Kerns and I went on a field trip for this week's edition of Seattle Sounds, the one-hour music show we co-host on 97.3 KIRO FM. Jay Boone, the owner of Emerald City Guitars -- and one of the nicest guys I've ever met with an axe between his fingers -- opened the doors of his shop for us and told us stories of his three decades in the business of selling guitars. The guy's got stories, and we captured a few keepers.

This week we're also talking about Soundgarden 2.0, my recent obsession with Oberhofer. Hey, we've got a report from our friend Rachel Belle, too.

Tune in to 97.3 KIRO FM Friday at 9 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. to hear the show, or stream it after the fact at
