I'm pleasantly surprised that the set set of are outliving the Gibson ones. I might be a hobbyist but the latter gave into rust way too quickly. Also it's amazing what can become of a relatively cheap when you set it up.
This is my father. He's the reason why my brother and I fell in love with music at an early age and eventually picked up guitars. Two days ago he was rushed to the hospital for a heart problem. It's a horrible feeling when you know someone that important to you is alone in intensive care and it's not an option for you to be there with them. He's back home and safe but life sure has an aggressive way to send reminders of how much love you have for your family.
