Help a friend out with a guitar...

    Reconciliation for a friend by Michael Herman - GoFundMe

    One of my friends over at sevenstring.org, jymellis, had a really unfortunate thing happen to him a couple days ago. His son, who was in trouble for skipping school, decided one night to escape his house and go on a joyride with some friends. On the way out, he took his dad's two prized guitars, his Ibanez UV7BK and his JEM777VBK, as well as his mom's credit cards. He goes out in his dad's Honda minivan (can I mention that this kid doesn't even have his permit yet) with his friends (the driver was in juvy for grand theft auto). Long story short, the van crashes it into a brick wall at 65 mph, destroying both guitars.

    This guy needs help. At the second link, you can donate money to help buy him a new guitar.

    I think your guitarist friend might have higher priorities than replacing a couple of guitars right now.

    Hope all works out for him and his family though.

    Screw the guitars, is the kid ok?
  6. Yeah, that's what I'm wondering. Is he well enough to get a whoopin? Cuz that's what he needs....:D

    BTW, charity threads are a no-no here. Just trying to save you from the mods here

    Does insurance cover "stupid"?

    "I'm sorry. Your kid's stupidity is a pre-existing condition and therefore not covered."

    That's rough. You know the kid was taking the guitars to hock them for dope money, right? So either way, they were gone.

    Oh yeah. I'm sooooooooooo cynical, huh? Why else do you leave with a couple of really high dollar, very portable items to go hang out with your hood friends?
  10. If that was my kid he would have wished he'd died in the accident after what i'd do to him!

    Uh, what is the back story here? The kid didn't just skip school, there's more going on here. I second the previous comment about the kid being a junkie, the guitars are not the priority, the troubled kid is. If you're collecting money, it should be for rehab or reform school.
