In the mid-1960's Ralph and Carter Stanley saw something in a boy from Lebanon, Ohio. From those early days with the Stanley Brothers, Larry Sparks has developed his own dynamic style while staying true to the traditions of that good old-time country music. Those powerful lead guitar breaks, paired with soulful vocals have endeared him to Bluegrass Music Lovers everywhere. The Larry Sparks Model Blueridge is based on the unique design elements of the guitar that is so closely identified with his career. The power and tradition are built in and the guitar, like Larry Sparks himself, is already being called "The Youngest of the Old-Timers!"
