Newbie from Centerville Ohio

Postby FrankJames » Wed Oct 26, 2011 1:50 pm

Hello everyone

I'm 64 years old, my main interest is in 50's and 60's music.

My first guitar was a Stella acoustic that Dad found in a pawn shop in 1956. I was 9 years old.

Just thinking about makes my fingers hurt......

I found this forum about a month ago while Googling for a Mosrite clone.

I've been lurking here, trying to decide what to buy.

I wanted a Ventures model when they came out in the 60's but couldn't afford one back then.

Thanks to Bob Shade at Hallmark I am now the proud owner of a 60 Custom.

Thanks for reading this.........
