Thank you to everyone for your kind words. A special thank you to those who have done something similar. I was given the gift of music from some one who was a mentor and father figure to me. It can change a life, even if it is only your own.
You're one of a kind. I've yet to gift a guitar to anyone outside my family, although I did sell my AV64 to someone for less than half price, the guy then proceeded to crap all over me. Excellent thing you've done, you should be proud.
