Loss of a friend...

About 7 years ago my good friend Anthony Schultz was working for Dean Guitars. He was able to assist me in getting a "sweet" hollow body electric Dean Guitar. As is life all good things must come to an end.

This weekend, I discovered the guitar looks good on the stand but doesn't do well when falling off... or knocked off for that matter. For reasons beyond my control and the person responsible will remain nameless, my friend - the guitar - was felled to the ground during the opening prayer of our Sunday services. The sound of a crackling thump followed by strings rapidly de-tuning just I said "Amen" tested my senses. That wasn't what I think it was... Was it? AARRGhhhhhh! Smile Mike - Remember your sermon on the importance of your relationship with God and not things?!?!?

There on the floor of the platform next to me was my friend beheaded.... Bummer!

This is one of those blogs that doesn't say much except to those that are musically inclined. What can I say I am shooting for a little bit of sympathy on this one. If you feel any at all to the point of assisting with a new "sweet" guitar all donations are graciously accepted. Otherwise just heed the caution - Be careful where you place your guitar on a stand in the close proximity of others.

Why don't we ever listen to good advice before we need it?
