Had an Epiphone ES-335 with BurstBuckers for sale on CL and was contacted by this 13yo kid who was interested in it. We arrange a meeting where they'd drive to my place to check it out. Dad is a nice laidback dude and his kid was just as easygoing and polite. They were impressed with the mancave and admired the gear as he is just starting out and has some solid-state amps for now. Kid plugs into my Marshall SuperLead half-stack and there's a huge smile on his face. You could tell he normally doesn't have access to more expensive gear. His eyes were like saucers and his smile was wide and bright. I didn't plug in once because this was his day. He didn't want to leave and it was obvious he was having a blast. I let him show me a lot of classic rock stuff he is into which is a little surprising since most kids his age I've met wouldn't be able to name a single Led Zep tune, or from The Who, or Clapton's Bluesbreaker days, and on and on. A little sloppy since he hasn't played long but there's passion and it's easy to see that he's a sponge for this stuff so there's definitely potential. We conclude the deal and once his dad felt it was time to go, they left happily with the guitar. Later in the evening, I sent them a text letting them know it was a pleasure to meet them and to encourage the kid to continue playing. The dad responds that his son had been playing the guitar non-stop since they got home. On and off, we'd have a quick exchange, just like yesterday when I got word he got himself a new Epiphone LP. It's something he's wanted for a long time, apparently. Got a pic of the kid playing it. Looks more like a rocker than I ever did even in my youth. LOL! Anyway, I'm set to pick up a couple of amps but once I'm all set up, I've invited the kid up to my place to jam with his new LP and whatever other guitars he wants to bring over. I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun. My poor wife will probably just stay upstairs where it's safe. LOL! Easy to see he's a good kid. With good taste in music, to boot. I'll probably end up making some nice BBQ chicken for them and we'll have a nice dinner with my wife. Have you ever formed a friendship through CL?
