We already discussed, but in case anyone is checking for comments before deciding to listen, this is a wonderful piece, on a number of levels. If you're a musician, it can evoke lots of stuff. For me it was the ONE guitar, my first real one, a 1969 Martin D-21 that has been gone for years and will always be my First True Love. I thought about the smell and sound of a REAL Fender Super Reverb,the first time I got close to one, and how I'd read every word on every page of the Vox catalogue when I was 12 or 13.

And there's just the romance of it all. It could be the guitar itself, and it certainly works as a metaphor for bipeds as well, I would imagine.

Bravo to Chris for being the journalist and for building something for us to vicariously satisfy an old longing through.

Alternative ending: you find the guitar and fall in love with Christine Maas ("but who should appear") and it sort of ends like Christmas Wrapping.

This is fantastic--I hope there's a plan to get it out to a large (NPR, maybe?) audience.

Of course, Ted Turner may have something to say about it....
