I had never seen a guitar with one of these. Not in real life, anyway, only in old pictures . . . very old pictures. I wondered if it worked. "Peter Frampton owned it. He sold it to Jimmy Page," the owner pleaded. "Jimmy Page sold it to Jimi Hendrix in 1986." "I bet he hardly used it," I said. "Only once and that was at that there big We Are The World concert," he offered. This was fun. "Remember that?" "Oh, yes," I said. "I couldn't keep my foot from tapping." I flipped the heavy beast over. " I'll give you 20 bucks," I said. He looked shocked. "For a guitar that Slash himself owned? Are you nuts?" I knew who was nuts, but I wanted the pickups. I WANTED the Chambered Star and Dot lever. "Oh, did Slash buy it from Jimi?" I asked. "No, I think he bought it from Prince," he said. "Fifty bucks," I countered. "Last offer and I get to use your bathroom before I go. Take it or leave it." I slung the guitar over my shoulder like a fat rifle. I gave him my best dare you to say no look. He stuck out his hand. We had a deal.
