Topic: NGD x 2! I won one of Roscoe's Guitars!
Wow - another new guitar day - twice in the same week! Lucky me!!! And more importantly, I am the proud winner / owner of one of Roscoe's guitars!
There was a charity event at the London Bus Pub tonight including the CD release of Roger's tribute album of David Bowie tunes and the official unveiling of Deb's mural. The evening's funds were donated to the Wounded Warrior Project and included a raffle for various prizes. Several kind folks donated various pieces of art, CD's, crafts, gift baskets, etc to be raffled off. The best prize offered was one of Roscoe's guitars - a 12 string Kingston he said is older than I am.
The way it worked was you bought your tickets and placed the matching ticket into a bag of the item you hoped to win. I put all of my tickets in the Roscoe Guitar bag - it was the last raffle of the night and I won!
I don't know much about it other than that it is a Kingston and is 50 years or so old. Roscoe had converted it to a 6 string (replacing the nut), so i gave it to Roger to change the nut and saddle and convert her back to a 12. I don't imagine it is worth much, but the fact that it is Roscoe's means I will cherish it always. Roscoe was there and said he was very pleased that I was the one to win it - that meant a lot to me- you'd have to know Roscoe to understand.
I don't have a pic of the actual guitar, but it looks just like this.
