Musician, guitar collector

Mac Yasuda played country music at an early age and fell in love with the style.  He organized a band in Japan dedicated to country music.  As his audiences grew, Mac was being asked more and more about where they too could get the type of guitars he was playing.  He soon began dealing in musical instruments and was a leader in collecting vintage guitar instruments, especially guitars made by Gibson.  He later grew his own collection to include banjos as well as costumes worn on stage by such icons as Hank Snow and Porter Wagoner.
