It was worth a try!
I have a D-28 on my list as my first good guitar when I upgrade from my Yamaha. was trying to drop the subtle hints to my uncle who has one the other night on the phone but he either wasn't getting the hints or was and wasn't having it....
I told him I was in the market for one and he says, "you want a new one or used one?" to which I reply "well a used one that had some history behind it, like knowing the guy who played it before me who I was maybe pretty close to would be kinda cool"
crickets....... "Uncle Jim, you still there?"
