White African Limba (Korina) [...] I found a guy in Africa who had it.
It's funny how the 70's Fenders and Gibsons [...] are still not selling for much.
I watch every '79 Deluxe that comes up on eBay and a couple other sites, because I'm sure that one day I'll have a chance to buy back the guitar I used in my punk rock days. Ha ha. Actually I know I will never have that chance, but if I do see it, I'll be able to recognize it because of a distinctive crack and the two holes I drilled into the top below the tailpiece to mount a metal BOYS TOWN winged emblem.
Funny, I sold that guitar to a guy who used to come to Los Angeles in an RV and buy up all the guitars in the Recycler (that broke musicians were selling to pay the rent) and take them back to his store in Las Vegas, so I was surprised to see it show up a few months later in some house band on an MTV show. But one day she will be mine again!
They made too many guitars. There should be a moratorium on building guitars. There are more than enough existing to satisfy every human who ever wishes to play one.
Then again, maybe no one is buying them. I read some articles recently about the "collapse" of the electric guitar market, because the kids don't care anymore. If they don't (and I'm not sure that's true), it's because all their rock stars now are so bland and ordinary that they would hardly inspire a young kid to try to become a rock star. What's the point when they all look like they work at Starbucks or a bicycle shop or at H&R Block.
And just to prove that if you can remember it, the Internet can show it to you, here's the Boys Town emblem:
