Some guitarists say that nothing beats the sound of a vintage instrument. Others say they aren't worth the time and trouble. Still others believe that guitars made these days are as good or better than new guitars were 20 years ago. Some of South Dakota's best musicians share the stories of their favorite guitars and talk about why they like some guitars better than others.
