On a tip from TTAC’s own Ronnie Schreiber, I spent this morning, also known as “the Detroit show’s second day”, at the infamous American Jewelry And Loan on 8 Mile Road. The guitar is a Matsumoku Vantage VP-700. The bass is a Westone Thunder I. Total whack for both was $375. And you know what they say — “if it ain’t been in a pawnshop, it can’t play the blues.”
Two long drives and one short flight later, I’m now about eight hundred miles away from where I started the day.
Oh, yes: I wrote this today and it already has 32,900 Facebook shares. I think that’s a lot for a story that doesn’t include sex or politics, right?
