A Fabulous Night

For the first time in nearly 3 years I played my Rigel R-100. I stupidly damaged it while playing one night at an open mic, and didn’t know Pete Langdell at Rigel was still doing repairs. The folks I asked to look at it wouldn’t touch it.

Our guitar player is taking instrument repair workshops, and a few months ago said “I can’t break it worse than it is” and I said “OK” — and he ran into Pete Langdell. And it’s beautiful now — the damage is invisible, it sounds like a dream straight and plugged-in, and tonight for the first time in months my left hand was pain-free after a 3-hour band practice. Huzzah for radiused fretboards!
