A chance meeting with filmmaker Jim Jarmusch (who gave Kelly some wood from his loft to build him a guitar) led to Kelly’s discovery of Adirondack timber: pine that had been lumbered in those virgin forests nearly two centuries ago to build much of modern New York. Reclaiming these “bones of the city,” Kelly began crafting electric guitars primarily modeled on Leo Fender’s classic Telecaster design.
Featuring a cast of prominent musicians and artists, and some virtuoso performances, the film captures five days in the life of one shop in the heart of Greenwich Village that is a tribute to an all-too-quickly vanishing way of life.
