“I went to The Guitar Gallery in Clearwater with Tommy Biondo one afternoon. One of Tommy's Thunderbird bass guitars had a broken head-stock and he was having it repaired by John Buscarino. This 1961 Gretch Tennessean was for sale and I had to have it. I paid a whopping $275 with the original case. I fell in love with this guitar and I played it almost exclusively for more than 10 years. One night at Club Detroit, it fell off the stand and the head-stock snapped off. I took it to John Buscarino and he repaired it as if it was never broken. Another guitar I could kick myself for ever loosing in various trades. My good friend Perry at The Music Shop never talked me out of making the stupid mistakes I was prone to when it came to gear.”
