1986. Junior high school. Kid I knew that played guitar got one. It was used and beat but just really cool. He hated it because the action was really high compared to his beater pointy headstock whatever which we all had. I tried to adjust it for him but knew nothing of guitar setups at the time and just made a mess of it. He took it to a local shop and when he got it back it was just perfect. It was The inspiration for me to buy my first one in 97. I was 26 years old and had a new baby. Was about broke and a local shop had a wine red studio I put on layaway for almost a year. I got hard up for money and sold it a few years later. I wish I hadn’t. It was one of the best guitars and LPs I have ever played.
