True Faith, True Light, In a dream, Ed Stilly was told by God to make guitars and give them away for free. So he did. Hundreds of them. Most of them given to children. Using a rusty door hinge for a tailpiece or a steak bone from his dinner plate as a bridge. When asked "why?" Brother Ed says, "To more clearly speak the voice of God."
