The humble guitar is a ubiquitous part of life around the globe. We produce over two and a half million guitars every year and it's big money. But it is also based on an ancient craft, and the music is still at the heart of the guitar. Geographer and guitar nerd Professor Chris Gibson and his colleague Andrew Warren have spent 5 years exploring the history and present of the guitar, from cord to chord.
