So I was supposed to call Brian Higgins when I was leaving work, but, Rock Star™ that I am, closed the IM window with his friend’s cell number. yeah. Smart one Athayde. So, I’m walking home and he pulls up on Wilson Blvd, I jump in the car and we head off to Guitar center. He barters his way through and gets a Fender Strat (American, about 10 years old, lace sensor pickups) and a Line 6 Pod 2.0 for $700. I bow to his l33t bartering skill. He is now on the path to rock stardom.
