So I guess the punk thing was not to be after all. For me at least! My second electric guitar, an Arbiter Les Paul copy. I remember sitting on a farm tractor collecting corn during the summer holidays thinking, "Only 2 more weeks and I can afford my new guitar". I also remember my mother not letting me take this new guitar to boarding school as I had to spend more time studying. I took the strings off, unbolted the neck from the guitar and put it in my suitcase. She never ever knew! I later confessed to her a few years ago that I did that. She was shocked but quite amused!
