About This Listing

March 19th, 1982. To borrow a line from Franklin D. Roosevelt, " A date, which will live in infamy." Where do I start when I think of the late great Randy Rhodes? If Eddie Van changed the landscape for rock guitarists, Randy expanded our horizons. Many words comes to mind when I think of him, but the one that stands out is "fearless."

He was, as we all wish we could be completely original, without apologies. What would it be like if you had the ability to transform your thoughts into powerful, yet melodic musical passages? His playing was as naturally as the air we breathe and when you see this in real life, you just smile. For the very few, the ones with "the gift", it almost feels like through their talents, it belongs to you as well.


As far as March 19th 1982? I know where I was; I was riding in a car up Highway I-20, on my way to see my high school sweetheart. What came on the radio that fateful day both shocked and saddened my best friend and I. He and I had to pull over for a moment of silence.


Like a generation before us, when Buddy Holley suddenly passed away in an airplane crash, so history repeated itself again. As the years pass us by, what really saddens me is the thoughts of what might of been and what should have been. Randy left a huge and indelible footprint. As I write this, I'm listening to Blizzard of Oz and I'm smiling. I'm also grateful that me, a mere mortal got to bask in the glow of greatness, if only for a short while.


About the guitar? This guitar is in 'excellent' condition, with only a few small surface indentations. The gold is all but faded off the pick guard, but the sheen is still very nice. Of course this guitar is powered by Duncan's and the wing tips are near flawless. Yep, this guitar comes with the hard shell case and is setup and ready to play.
