I’m not sure when this guitar was built. I’m not even 100% sure about the date that Grandpa gave it to me. I do know it was very close to the summer of 1996, so I took a guess. The reason that I know is because I had spent the previous summer mowing his lawn for $15 a pop. After proving that I was up to the task of following the correct path, and avoiding the piece of rebar that stuck out of the ground near his shop, I was offered this guitar in exchange for mowing his lawn until I graduated high school. Without even doing the math, I knew it was a good deal and didn’t hesitate in taking him up on it.
