    That was the whole family , just good folks ( except the father ) he was away at the time of the fire and blames Mrs. Quinn for the loss of J.C. so he beat her up and broke her arm . I'm grateful we all became very close over the years with the family . Mrs. Q raised a good family and should be proud .
    Thanks Ronbo

    I do not know what to say. Great story and guitar. Hope you have a lot of fun with your new toy.
    What did Mrs. Thunder say ? You know I am going to quote you on that.

    A very fitting tribute for Michael. Play it often with and let the memories of Michael fill your heart. Some things are definitely worth waiting for.
    Congratulations, Rich.

    Ah yes. Guitars are so much more than wood and wire. This story is as much about those intangibles as it is about the physicality of the wonderous SG. So glad you had the chance to make this happen @thunder58
    Congrats
