Subject: John Zehnder, RIP
From: John on the Sunset Coast

John Zehnder died this past Sunday. He was a longtime fixture and instrument fixer at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, and way more than that. John was a college friend at Santa Monica City College and UCLA from 1959. He was the influence that got me past the Kingston Trio into more true (whatever that means) folk music, and even gave me guitar lessons--I suspect I was his only failure. Over the past 45 years I would see him on occasion, generally at McCabe's, and we'd catch up a little. I had not seen him in the past five or so years. I admired John Zehnder, because, more than any other person I knew, he followed his dream and his most favorite vocation. Heaven is rollicking with old-timey music since John arrived, but I will miss him down here.

There will be a memorial service next Wednesday, March 15th, 1:00 pm at his old church, St John's Presbyterian on National east of Sepulveda in West L.A. McCabes will be closed all that day in his memory.

When I bought my 1934 Gibson L-00 it was a wreck, with the back cracked and halfway off the body. I brought it into McCabe's in the mid-1980s to see if anything could be done with it. John took it and fixed it up, and now it's the sweetest sounding guitar I've ever had.

Only four messages above mine...but what a tribute!

I have added John to the Mudcat memoriam thread.

Best wishes,

Peter
