After defeating Eddie Alvarez, Connor McGregor, in the post fight interview uttered these words: “This is what I dreamed into reality.” If you stop and think about it for a minute, that’s some really deep stuff. This is what I dreamed into reality.That man took a thought and made it happen for real in his life and I’m quite sure it took a metric ton of conviction to do it, so I will now apply that very same conviction to the sale of this Jerry Donahue Tele. Elks, I am going to make this happen…

We’ve taken the pictures and checked out the guitar. Everything is jimmy-jimmy and it’s a fine instrument. So here is the phone call that will come to us:

Me: “GrinningElk Music. This is Ray.”
Guy That Is Actually Going To Play This Guitar: “Hey Ray. I’m calling about that Jerry Donahue Tele. Can you give me some info on it?”
Me: “Absolutely. What’s your name?”
The Guy: “Nick.”
Me: “Hey Nick, thanks for the call. Well, it weighs 7 lbs, 5 oz. It’s got a fretboard radius of 9.5″ and it’s got new strings. Our tech checked it out and it’s ready to go. I think it’s a killer guitar, especially with the Duncans in it.”
Nick: “This is an early one, isn’t it?”
Me: “Yep- the neck is late ’93 and the body is ’94. John Page era.”
Nick: “Well that’s a pretty good price for one of these and I’ve been on the hunt for a while. You take credit cards?”
Me: “We do Nick, but I gotta tell you a couple of things. The COA and case candy are gone. Just gone with the wind, man- nothing I can do about that.”
Nick: “I don’t care. I’m gonna play it.”
Me: “That’s very cool, but there’s a couple of touched- up spots on the back and the gold is tarnishing a little on the neckplate. It’s still a clean guitar.”
Nick: “I don’t care. I’m gonna play it.”
Me: (stunned) “Hold on, brother. There’s also some pickswirl marks on the pickguard and swirl marks around the knobs. I’m sure you’ve seen it a million times before.”
Nick: “Man, I don’t care. I play in two different bands and that’s the Tele I’ve been looking for. You ready to take these numbers?”
Me: “Yes I am. Let’s do this, Nick.”

Now the above might come in a phone call or it might come in an email exchange but it’s coming. The guy that is going to plug this Tele into an amp and raise all kinds of Texas hell will find us and when he does, I will make it my sole and personal mission to get this guitar into his hands with the utmost professionalism and promptness. That day will come. It will happen. This is what I will dream into reality…
