Who knew turning 47 would be so ... cool!
Back in August when we did Rezonate, our friend Joe, the bassist from 8 Lives Spent, was so generous as to custom design a bass guitar to be raffled off at the event. He actually did TWO guitars and gave the proceeds from both to Backpacks For Pine Ridge. At Rezonate when Joe handed over the bass he had designed I was drooling over it and wishing I could win it myself but knowing that I could not. So my husband Brian got the idea to have Joe custom design one for me for my birthday. Now not only did Joe design one specifically for me with pics from Rezonate and the autographs of all the band, but this bass was extra special because it was one from his own personal collection.
Here are some pics ... I hope you can see the details because this is truly a BEAUTIFUL bass. The note that is part of the design reads, "Custom Designed by Joe '2 Coat' Jones For Amber Buriff. This bass was used 7-26-08 at the Fredrick Co. Fair in Winchester, VA. Happy Birthday Amber and I hope you enjoy the bass as much as I did!!! Joe '2 Coat' Jones"
