I bought this guitar in
1968, after falling in
love with B.B. King.  I
then realized the
direction that I needed
to go in.  I saved my
lunch money and
allowance in a tissue
box on top of my
dresser. It cost me all
of $210!
The pickups died on
me, and I put in
Seymour Duncan
59ers with creme
mounting rings.  I still
have the pickguard...
It's in my closet.  I also
put on Grover tuning
pegs.  It's got a sweet
tone.
I used it alot on the
Blue Angel record.  I
don't take it on the
road with me anymore.
There is a warm spot
in my heart for this
guitar.  It was my first
"real" guitar.  (My very
first guitar was a $19.
Teisco Del Rey electric.
My second was a $33.
Harmony acoustic
...which was stolen.)
