Sammy had this guitar stolen from the Dallas stage on his N American 1982 tour. It was a fav and the date code on the end of the neck is March, 63. The guitar showed up at his Houston concert a few weeks later. He never played it again until he returned to Dallas for the TX Jam. He came out and played 1/2 a song and then said he would not play or keep a guitar a thief played. He then smashed it, threw it our and I came up withthe neck. That was one wild ride as nearly everyone person the Cotton Bowl floor wanted a piece of it.
