Default Story about a Martin D-93

Cool story about Billy Strings (Billy Burrr on UMGF forum) when he was an 18 yr old unknown. William Apostol doing everything he can to reacquire his fathers sold Martin guitar. The story is from postings on 2010 UMGF forum.

True stories are always the best. The Dad did what he had to do to feed his family. Then the son did what he had to do to get the heirloom back. The Dad may be dead but the love his son has for him is not.
