Friday night after a pretty nice gig, I'm just finishing loading up the wagon. My bass player goes back in the club and grabs my Tele and Lap Steel off the pool table. The case for the steel pops open and she hits the floor snapping her clean in half. She was a pre-war Rickenbacker panda I had owned for over 30 years. Irreplaceable. 20 years ago in a drunken stuppor after a gig I had carved Papino in the metal pick guard. And while I'm not into that name your guitar thing for the most part, she became Papino, and she could sing. When I first got her I was mostly into the blues and southern rock thing. I'd tune her open E and use all the licks I stole from Duane. Later I began experiment with different tunings and applying her to different styles. Lately I was using C6 and using her mostly on swing and country. Saturday I started getting phone calls from friends and fans of my band expressing their sympathy. It was like a death in the family. The gig Saturday night seemed like a wake to me. I know this is stupid for a grown man to be so upset over the loss of a guitar but I had a lot of good memories in that thing. Thanks for letting me get some of this out..... Does anybody know a good glue that would work on bakelite?
