Fairly believable. Lots of connections like that here. I think the owner, or one of their staff, is also known as a pretty good relicer/luthier.I was also interested in the guitar (at a lower price), wrote the guy and he just told me that he is a personal friend of Pat, but did not make any fuzz about it.
If Pat had it, it was for a really short period of time...
I can't buy it but if the guitar is in their Burbank location, PM me if you want me to check anything about it in-hand. (Unless you're also local, of course.)
