|This project came about when Scot Lamar and Joe Davis first
started talking about the Goldtop guitar. Through mutual
conversation it was agreed upon that Joe Davis would be
granted permission to record with the guitar. Once in motion,

News of the story broke on The Francene Morris Show on
CBS Radio, which aired on Easter Sunday, 2010.
The album is fully recording and is currently in post

one-of-a-kind songs, including Eric Clapton's hit song "Layla"
(on which this Goldtop was used on the original recording).
The release date is set for mid August.
