I can always use guitar strings..... soooo, I said I'd be interested if he could get a good deal on a set for me.
He said something like ..no problem, I own the place.
I didn't know it at the time but my new talented smoking friend is Sterling Ball, son of Ernie Ball. If you've ever played guitar, you know the names.
I grew up with Ernie Ball products, they are reliable and have definately stood the test of time.
Sterling said he would send some strings to me, and recommended I try the new coated strings.
A few days later I received this huge box full of goodies! A case of coated strings, several packs of silk and steel strings, a power peg winder, string cleaner, guitar cleaner, a guitar cloth, a Battle of the Bands CD, SEVERAL wonderful t-shirts.......
I was, and still am floored.
If you get the chance, stop by and check out the Ernie Ball site... http://www.ernieball.com/
Also Sterling's Musicman Guitars... http://www.music-man.com/
Also wanted to add, Sterling will be opening up a smoking forum soon for people like me who are addicted. :) I'll post the link when it's up and running.
Sterling, If you read this, THANK YOU again...... I'm still speechless.
