Fender Gemini 2
Guy wanders off and comes back couple of minutes later with this in his hand.
He asked what sort of music I played and I said blues and he fired off the most mesmerising blues lick I ever heard on this guitar.I was smitten and it looked just what I wanted and the price was right, £80, it was an unwanted gift and the proprietor was selling it on behalf of the owner, so I even new its pedigree.
Without any hassle I offered my credit card and the guy looked at me with distaste, sorry no credit card, got to be cash mate. So I then spent what seemed like an eternity trying to find a cash dispenser which a.) wasn't vandalised and b.) actually had some money in it. Found one in nearby Tynemouth, got my readies and was back at the shop wretching this from his sweaty palm. The guy had taken a liking to it and had joined his mates in a jam session.
