It's been in his garage down in Tampa. He said that I'd given it to him, which I have no reason to doubt. I'm sure I must've. I do not, however, have even the slightest recollection of having done so. It was the Eighties after all.
wow amazing but so where was it all this time and how he end up with it?

Another cool, interesting and amusing story, man :thu:
What's to become of Checkers? Another wall hanging?

Yep, I reckon she'll go up in La Officina, as she would clash horribly with the decor at Casa Krashpad, over which Mrs. K has final say. Although, like the fictional TV character Al Bundy, I do have rights to the garage, the free wall space therein was long ago consigned to the Crash Pad Gig Flyer Archive, which at present has used up almost all the visible sheetrock, and now has migrated to the HVAC ductwork, via magnets.

No, I did it, quite crudely. First I painted it white, with some house paint that was laying about. Then I took a pencil and drew a grid on it, and hand-painted each one of the black squares with a small brush. There was no sanding or sealing or any of the other things one does (or so I read) when doing an actual proper guitar finish. Then again, at that point it wasn't a proper guitar anyhow.
How did it get that finish? Did you do that or did someone else do it after you lost possession?

Man, you just need a painters' cap, some parachute pants, and a pair of Vans & you're all set :thu:
Seriously, cool story... congrats on getting Checkers back!
