    Kurt Cobain's Hagstrom Blue Sparkle

The beautiful display of 70′s Fenders and rare Rickenbackers we spotted through the window summoned us into BlackBook Guitars like moths to a flame. Nate, the owner, was quick to greet us with his warm smile as we strolled through the front doors.

For a rock-obsessed girl like me, walking into BlackBook Guitars was like coming home. It smelled legendary, if legend has a smell. My mind started racing as I began to imagine the back-story of each vintage guitar – each scratch, each stain telling its own unique tale.

Like an encyclopedia of rock history, Nate explained the significance of each rare treasure that I laid eyes on. His passion for curating impossible-to-find guitars, vintage basses, amps and pedals from northwest music history makers beamed, and when he showed me a guitar that was once owned by Kurt Cobain, I decided that my life, in that moment, was complete.

When you’re in Portland and feeling a bit Hagstrom blue sparkle, stop by Nate’s place at 3624 N Mississippi Ave, and be sure to check out his amazing  finds at www.blackbookguitars.com.
