Southern Pacific Railroad’s Siskiyou Summit Tunnel #13 was built in the 1880s using virgin redwood timbers harvested in Southwestern Oregon. These timbers witnessed the October 11, 1923 hold up of the SP Train 13 Gold Special, pulling 13 cars, by the DeAutremont brothers. Four men were killed in the robbery attempt.


When these magnificent redwood timbers were salvaged from this historic tunnel after a fire in 2004, Petros Guitars managed to acquire some of the nicer sections. When these diamonds in the rough were opened up, they were discovered to be exceptional, master-grade tonewood, air dried in this tunnel for more than 120 years. Paired figured Claro walnut from Oregon and a Butternut neck from Wisconsin, this guitar is light as a feather—just 3 pounds, 14 ounces—with the resonance of a 120 year old guitar.

After a century of silence, Petros Tunnel 13 Redwood guitars are giving voice to the remarkable redwood of Tunnel 13.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
