I purchased this guitar in Miami, Florida in 1989, after having moved to live in the Dominican Republic. I was far from home and literally on an island. I needed a guitar I could practice on, and yet with an ability to face the elements, as the D. R. can be one hot and humid place.
Over the years, this guitar has delivered time and again. I have had the opportunity to sell or trade it many times, and yet I can’t seem to let it go. Thick, heavy, fast, and so well broken in, it’s like an old shoe you just can’t deny.
