Truth. Bought it at a local department store in Hartford, CT when it was weeks old.
"I don't know much about love, people, but I sure got it bad". Hard to believe that was the Rod Stewart singing who became the Do Ya Think I'm Sexy Rod Stewart. So cool to see Joe Bonamassa perform it (Blues...
Sunburst 65 Gibson J-200.
Bought it used in Chicago in 1975, with an old repaired body crack, for $650, sold it 15 years later after a moving snafu where it got left in a U-Haul overnight in freezing cold and then the case got opened quickly the next day to see if there was any damage and I...

Simple process, fast shipping, and check out the web site to see
if you might want any of the right angle plugs or other specialty ones, too.
