Wade Burgan
Item Purchased: '07 Les Paul Standard

Wade came over and spent a Saturday morning with us to check out this Les Paul but before he arrived, he prefaced his visit with a call that began, "Hello Sir. Lee told me that you would like to save some money on your long distance charges". In a word- mistake. Lee and I run around the 'Elk cave like two mice, just trying to keep up with the day to day operations here and when somebody calls to "help us save on our long distance charges", it usually results in a stream of profanity that would make a 30- year submarine veteran blush. So, we had it in for 'ol Wade before he even got here and when he did arrive, everything was as cool as the other side of the pillow. He played the Les Paul, checked out our just- in Splawn Quickrod, (believe it when I say my neighbor Margie threw a couple of stern looks our way) and seemed satisfied with the overall proceedings. Then, we just chatted for a while and he let it slip out that he like Nirvana, Metallica and especially, Zakk Wylde. Remembering the crank call from the previous day, I ran into the 'Elk vault and pulled out the only EKO Wes Paul "Desmond Child" guitar ever produced. Then, I took my pocketknife and scratched out the "Desmond" on the headstock and scratched in the name "Zakk". Trying not to hurry, I then scratched out the word "Child" and etched in "Wylde", ran back up into the detail room and threw my pet rat, Fluffy in the middle of the floor. "Mother of God, a rat" I screamed, and when Lee and Wade looked to see what I was bellerin' about, I took the '07 Standard out of the case and threw in the Desmond Wylde guitar. After the commotion died down concerning the rat, we all swapped pleasantries and we promptly kicked Wade the heck out of the 'Elk cave. We're still waiting for the call that starts out with "Hey man.." but that, my friends is what you get when you prank- call Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. No bull- just bologna...... Thanks, Wade- we appreciate the visit and welcome to our wonderful and dysfunctional herd....
