Modern Luthier

By Landon Cooper

Samantha Marshall fell in love with music when she heard Jackie Lee’s guitar solo in Ozzy Osbourne’s “Shot In The Dark,” at the age of fifteen. Since then, music has been an instrumental factor in her life. Samantha began fixing and building her own guitars, soon gaining a reputation in the area of Hickory and even out to Greensboro, North Carolina.

Samantha never felt like the person she appeared to be was the person she truly was. After coming out, her outgoing personality began to shine and her career at Larry’s Music and Sound was busier than it had ever been. Her goal is to put the very best guitar back into her customers hands so that they can find catharsis in their own sounds, the way that she had.
