From the Sea

I’d love to be one of those gifted people who seduce melodies from instruments, but I’m not.

Greg Fleming, a multi-talented musician from St. John’s, Newfoundland, is one of those people. He not only plays the electric guitar, he builds them.

With his Tidebreaker guitars, Greg has created something new—from something old.

Three hundred and fifty-nine years old, in fact.

Time, and tides, and history. Atlantic storms, and sailing ships, and one group of sailors who never got home.

A sunken ship, put together with “tree nails” instead of steel. Bits and pieces dredged off the ocean floor. Timbers carbon-dated to 1661.

Under the ocean for three hundred years, the salt-water infused wood inspired Greg to craft the Tidebreaker guitars, and gives them their unique sound.

“Every time,” says Greg, “I kind of get a little bit of chills when I realize I’m playing a shipwreck that was underwater for 300 years.”
