A Guitar with history


Lane Family Archive

Ty's Aunt Leah played the Gibson in the family band with his dad Kit, and grandfather Norval.

WAITSBURG–This weekend, Burgers, Bands, and Brews features alternative country band Frog Hollow Band and some family lore. Band member Ty Lane plans on playing his grandfather Norval's Gibson ES-125 on a few numbers.

The distinctive sunburst, hollow-body electric guitar holds a special place in Lane's family history. Norvel most likely purchased it in the late 50s and performed with it through the following decades.

The guitar was played by Lane's aunt Leah in a band with Norval and Ty's father, Kit. Known as The Lanes, they played country standards in Spring Valley, Oregon, in the '70s.
