It's strange. There's some things I LOVE about this, but then there's some things......

.

I guess I'll just go with it.

 

BTW, that guitar was given to me by my guitar instructor and friend Daryl when I was still in middle school (back in the early 90s). It is a custom handmade guitar that he bought from a friend of his back in California. Daryl was letting me borrow it since I was learning to play, and my $52 Service Merchandise guitar (that I bought with my own money) started disintegrating... it was junk anyway... ha ha. He was also playing more and more with his classical guitar.

 

Daryl had asked to borrow back the guitar because he needed it for something and was going to put new strings on it for me. A few days later, I came home from school and found that he had returned the guitar to me. When I lifted it out of the case to play it, there was a fancy certificate that read, "Happy Birthday, Jamal. This guitar now belongs to you!" I was shocked. I couldn't believe he would give me such an awesome guitar for FREE!

 

I'll never forget his great act of kindness. Always truly grateful!
