Gerald Sheppard- Player and Builder of Fine Guitars

Here’s another guitarist that I wasn’t aware of by the name of Gerald Sheppard, performing the Sting/Police song entitled “Fields Of Gold.”

What’s cool about this video besides his clean pickin’ is he is playing his own hand built guitar.

Now I don’t know about you guys but, I would prefer to buy a custom built guitar from someone that can really play like Gerald. I tend to be leery of  builders that just build (how would they know if the guitar is any good?)

He’s getting a nice recorded sound using two AKG C 1000’s but really, the guitar and the man behind it is what really counts.

If you are in the market for a custom built guitar, I think Gerald’s work is worth checking out (BYW, I have no financial gain by telling you this).

His contact info is available if you click on and watch the vid over at YouTube, but come back here and watch more of our top “must see” acoustic guitar videos here at  or even better, sign up for our weekly newsletter and never skip a beat (just to the right of this post).

Special thanks go to Jim Weaver for introducing us to the multi-talented Gerald Sheppard.
