To make a long story short, we acquired most of our guitars by going to different areas of the country, renting a car and driving through every town and city on a route that was mapped out. Waking up at 7 am, heading for the nearest Waffle House( if down south) then getting in the car and driving to every pawnshop, music store and private party that might have guitars. Newspapers, penny savers and recycle papers everywhere we stopped. Not much time for lunch if any, onward as we usually had from 9 to 5 or 6 to shop and sometimes eating dinner at 9 pm when our day was done searching for rare vintage guitars, Fender, Gibson, Gretsch, Martin, Rickenbackers or whatever caught our attention. Day after day, sometimes getting no guitars after covering a hundred miles a day but on and on went the search, a hard and very exhausting way to find those guitars that ended up on the walls at Voltage Guitars!
( Too bad it does,nt work like this anymore… the people i met, the stories i,ve heard, I love this country)!
