I can honestly say I don't remember. There were too many mouths to feed as a kid to have my own guitar. It would have been destroyed in less than an hour anyway in our house. However, guitars were like baseball gloves where I grew up, never a shortage. So, I cannot remember if it is was one I borrowed or bought and sold. One thing I do know is I am getting old. Where's a digital camera with a time stamp when you need one.
