    Don't you just love real life happy-ending stories like this?
    And what a wife to go out and find it for him, that's really special.
    Nice guitar too.
    Thanks for posting zacky.

    Great story. He and those Ric's he played created an undeniable signature sound.

    That's cool. And goes to show, no matter how awesome your guitar is, it is more important to have an awesome spouse!

    So cool, i would've loved to give that guitar back to him, guess Norm didn't see it that way! 40,000.00 i would have walked too, especially after the raping he got from Fantasy.
    Im really happy for him, and im glad he's put that stuff behind him. New music coming from JF!!!!

    Cool story, cool wife ... I wish I was that backstage boy :D ... instead of starting with a Japanese Les Paul, though that was quite good.
