Sandy Paton Anyone know of this guitar? (28) RE: Anyone know of this guitar? 15 May 04

Yup, they looked a lot like that, Don. But then, most classical guitars look kinda like that to me. I do know that I bought the ten of 'em for $35 each, the wholesale price given to me by a friend who supported the project. That was back in the summer of 1967, you understand. I don't remember, but I doubt very much that they had ebony fingerboards at that price! Still, they held up well and played easily. At the end of the summer, I kept one of the sweetest sounding ones for myself, and sold the others to some of the kids. I wish I still had the one I kept, but it finally went away in a trade of some sort.
    About ten years ago, I got a call from one of the New York girls. She had been 12 years old when I showed her the first few chords. Her talent was more than obvious, it was radiant! We got back together when she came to one of Jerry Rasmussen's Folk festivals at the Stamford Museum. She brought along her five year old daughter. At the time we renewed our friendship, she was running a small, independent studio in New York and composing and recording music for a television kids program, plus performing with a hip-hop group. Let me tell you, kids, I was like a proud papa!
