Nephew of George Beauchamp

Ed Caustin was the nephew of guitar pioneer George Beauchamp.  Ed recounted several stories about his very creative uncle, who Ed looked up to as an inspiration.  In fact, Ed later worked as an engineer in aerospace and with the space program. At times, he used audio and sound waves in his work.  George often brought his latest invention over to family gatherings and Ed, as a child, played on the guitars with megaphones or the latest model of the Frying Pan, which his uncle helped to design along with Adolph Rickenbacker.
