In the series premiere, we meet our narrator, Terrance Woodridge, who brings us a tale he’s chased down: the story of Sugar Maple, the guitar of legend with a timeless sound that’s passed from hand to hand over the years.
In this episode, we go back to 1951 and hear the story of “Sweet Licks” Bobby Lindro, an orphan from the farmlands outside Chicago. When his brand new Telecaster’s neck is destroyed, he’s sure nothing can replace it, until his Aunt procures mysterious wood that seems to make Bobby’s guitar truly sing, and gives Bobby dreams that carry him places he never meant to go.
