New, old friend guitar day...
Back story.
A few years back my good friend Dave (Greco) bought an Epi 339. I was present at this purchase. A while later I was present when he sold it to another good friend of mine, Mark.
Fast forward a few years, Mark saw some serious health issues and unfortunately left us a few weeks ago. As he was a dear friend and musical mentor of sorts to me I wanted to have something musical of his to remember him by. I bought this off his sister and gave her a quick polish and a new set of strings. I'll look forward to playing her and remembering my good friend.

Got me all choked up on this one.

A wonderful way to remember a very wonderful fellow.

I am so pleased that Mark owned that guitar for quite some time. I clearly remember taking it to your place and seeing him trying it and being excited/happy about it.

IIRC, that was the first Epi 339 in the K-W area.
@Hamstrung had asked L&M to bring one in as they were just being introduced and we (@Hamstrung , our friend Ignacio and myself ) went to L&M Waterloo to see it. I came home with it. Ironically I am now playing a red 339 Epi. Casino Coupe.

RIP Mark.
