    That he got the guitar back is cool. That it's inspiring him to write new music is awesome.

  10. Great story!

    And as a "side bar" ... another reason to 'never' sign with a record company.

    I wonder what his wife wound up paying for it?
    That's a great story - the one about Peter Frampton reuniting with his famous Les Paul is also a cool story.
    I would like to hook up with my Original 73 Lefty Les Paul again.
