Juan P-B Your most prized guitar (108* d) RE: Your most prized guitar 27 Sep 04

Back in 1976 I went to buy a coupla sets of strings and came away with a Suzuki 3S (copy of a Martin D28) for £126.00 - I sold it once (when I gave up music) and bought it back again soon after.

I have a hand-made 'Vince Hockey; cut-away which is heavenly, two Takamine FP400S 12-Strings (One in open 'D' Tuning') and my original 1967 Eko Ranger 12.

I still love the Suzuki best of all! It played me when I married my Shirley, When my Jenny & my Kaite were born and we played & sung together to my mum the night before she passed away.

It's been all around the world with me and I still love it to bits -

I have only ever seen one other 3S and offered the guy my Top-of-the-range Yamaha and flight case just for the 3S but he wouldn't trade (but he did offer to buy mine)

I've tried (and owned) other Suzuki guitars but none matches the 3S.

When I die it may well be going with me.
