Mixed feelings

Nearly 40 years ago I started playing guitar. My first purchase was a Hofner Spanish (nylon-stringed) guitar, and my second was a Rickenbacker semi-hollowbody electric. You can see pictures of the Rick here.

I recognized a while back that I was not going to be invited to play in any rock and roll bands again (never was, really), so I put the Rickenbacker up for sale. A couple of weeks ago a guitarist in Michigan offered to buy it, and after some discussion of logistics I decided to sell it to him.

Monday, after receiving confirmation from PayPal that the money had been credited to my account, I shipped it off. Realistically I won't miss it, but it was a reminder of my youth that I no longer have. Ah well.
