BRAD HORN/Nevada Appeal Dan Linn plays a Spirit custom jazz box at the Carson City store on Wednesday. Bono, lead singer of the Irish rock band U2, recently played a Spirit guitar during a television concert. Spirit guitars are made in Gardnerville.
Name: Dan Linn Position: Owner Product: The store sells Spirit guitars, which are made in Gardnerville. They have been sold directly to artists and on their Web site, but this is the first and only retail store. The business tried selling the electric and acoustic guitars and basses through dealers but didn't like how they were handled.
