I'm talking to any of you folks out there who "know this guy with an old guitar..." and you maybe don't feel comfortable calling and starting negotiations for maybe a lack of funds or insufficient familiarity with the make or model. Please DON'T let it "fall through the cracks in the sidewalk!" Call me. If I succeed in buying the guitar I'll be thrilled to award a finder's or guitars!
