I think at one point or another, we had some life changing gift given to us by someone in our lives. In the summer of 1979, my grandmother purchased this guitar, a 2 watt amp, a strap, and some other supplies. At the time, my arm was in a sling. I was bored out of my mind with a broken wrist.
I used the guitar some but didnt gain traction at the time. My sister, also used the guitar until she was given a Fender Strat by my father. I got the guitar back, along with the amp. Both still work.
So, this is a thank you to my grandfather and grandmother for taking flack and purchasing this for me. It is indeed one of the possessions that I have that are, in my value book, priceless. Music is a hobby that is close to my soul. It has helped keep me sane, and has given me great joy.
