Kessler in the studio

© John Gellman

Guitarist Kessler Watson posed for me a couple nights ago in a vacant office that makes a wonderful studio just across the hall from my tiny studio/office in Asheville’s Flatiron Building. I like this location so much, I am going to try to secure it, even if I need to do a kickstarter campaign to finance it. Kessler is playing his vintage Gibson Melody Maker guitar. The guitar is in need of some restoration, but sounds great. It dates somewhere between 1959 and 1963. Kessler is not sure. The guitar has been in Kessler’s family for a while, and was given to him by his dad. It’s a beautiful instrument.
