Mythology, often times, spoke of prominent astrological events foretelling the birth of a child, or children, destined to change the course of the world for the better. These important occurrences are meant to bid welcome to the arrival of these gracious and contributing spirits.
Modern mythologists point to a paradigm shift in the type of prominent events that now mark our history as they usher in blissful occurrences to the world. Professor Machel Goldlukenberg, head of the Institute for Ancient and Modern Mythological Scientific Studies at the University Kantaria, is one such noted specialist. She states, “Our research at the Institute has noted that in the past, significant events were marked by the aspect of celestial bodies in the night sky, but with the alignment of the moons of Jupiter that has all changed. We are now seeing the most significant events in history run a parallel with the creation and debut of outstanding Anderson Electric Guitars.” As farfetched as this researcher’s radical ideas first sound, she may actually have a point.
Every since Brian Harris, of Charley’s Guitar Shop, asked us to have Dan Lawrence paint Hot Rod Flames on his personal T Classic, things have been different. That same day a grant was approved in Tallahassee for research on the Leatherback Sea Turtle. Hot Rod Flames began to appear on other Andersons as well—most notably this M-Series, Classic from Make’n Music. The day this guitar arrived was the anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. Can these two things be mere coincidence? Some people don’t think so.
Up to this point however, none have ever been so bold and so blue as Jay’s new Hot Rod look on his Pro Am T—a guitar model you may not even have known that we make since, much to our surprise too, one has never appeared on the Anderson website—a very significant event in itself.
But, if the modern mythology holds true, this earthshaking new guitar must also be the precursor to the coming of a blessed event of monumental proportions. And it is! Turning to Dallas, Anderson Guitars has learned that Jay’s beautiful wife Phyllis is due to give birth to triplets in about two weeks time, two boys and one girl. Congratulations Jay and Phyllis.
But seriously, when Brian spoke to us of Jay and what was coming for him and his family, he spoke with a fondness, love and respect that warmed our heart. We all should care for one another in this way. So, when he requested a Guitar of the Week for his friend Jay and his beautiful Blue Hot Rod Flamed, Pro Am T as a tribute and welcome to his new family, we were happy to oblige.
Happy Birthday to one and all.
