This guitar belonged to Gordon, from The Ticket. He's a minor local Dallas-area celebrity. He bought it for his dad, who used to own an original New Yorker. His dad got to play it the night before he passed away.
I purchased the guitar from Tone Shop guitars, in Addison, TX. I was able to connect with Gordon about it. Kind of cool. It has a lovely dark tone that's hard to describe, and completely at odds with its harsh, buzzy unplugged tone.
