This guitar came to me under very special circumstances. Several years ago my house was broken into while I was out at the supermarket and five guitars were stolen from my house. Along with all of my pedals, and our laptop, camera, ipod .etc. After sharing the story of the break in on the pages here, a few weeks went by before I received an email from Joel at Shanghai Music. It was about 2am when I got the email, as I wasn't really sleeping so well at that time. It said that from contributions from GDP members, I had a significant amount of store credit from his store to buy a new guitar. After exchanging a few more emails, Joel decided he'd get in touch with Joe Carducci and let him know what was going on. Joe pledged to sell Joel a guitar at a special discounted wholesale price, which he could then pass on to me. So thanks to the kindness of the all the folks on here, Joel from Shanghai and Joe Carducci, I obtained this gorgeous Silver Jet, a pair of Powertrons, the obligatory western strap and a couple of pedals to get me one my way again. She's been my #1 ever since, and I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful instrument to make my music with.
