Paying it forward again!
Another guitar donated to a student

Thanks to long time FB friend Cheryl Ann H. who donated a never before used Epiphone PR5-E for me to give to Tim Herman, a homebound student of mine. This is the smile as seen when he lifted the newly opened the Alpine White Acoustic/Electric beauty.   Seriously, I love this stuff.
Proud of you Tim!
