Not the former Pirate, but the lead guitar player for Reba McEntyre's touring band. They were in Johnstown lastnight and were out and about through town and he and the bass player stopped in my shop. (Minus Reba) They were looking around and trying a few things out and left.

I got a phone call about 2pm asking about an old Vox Viscount Amp I had for sale and if I'd do any better on the price. He offered $xxx and two tickets to the Reba Concert. I asked what section were the tickets in and how about $xxx + $25 and the tickets. He said he would check and call me back. It was a Nashville area code on the caller ID, so I had a suspicion it was someone with the band. He called me back at 4:30 and said the seats were third row on the floor and he'd do the $xxx +$25. The only catch was that I had to deliver the amp to the arena before the concert.

I got to the arena about 45 minutes before show time and dropped off the amp. He paid cash and was cool enough to let me get a picture and an autograph on a guitar. I asked if I could get the rest of the band but Reba's assistant said she wouldnt be able to sign as was getting last minute makeup applied.
He was like a kid a Christmas with that amp and said once he messed with it, he'd probably be using it to record some of his own stuff when the tour is over.
