Shawn Hammond

Shawn Hammond became a guitar nut at the age of six, when he heard the debut of Ed Van Halen’s “Eruption”—though he didn’t start playing till he was 12. As you’d expect, he went through a “must-have-a-Floyd-Rose” phase, but he’s since become a Bigsby addict. He lives with his wife, three boys, Evey the Great Dane, and Viktor the cat in Cedar Rapids, IA.
