Dear Guy (if I may),

I write to say what a wonderful collection you have. I was drawn to it by the John Bailey guitar.

My interest in it is that I knew John a bit back in the ‘60s. I was an enthusiastic bluegrass auto harp and guitar picker at the time in Sevenoaks, Kent. I saw the guitar when it was first owned by Andy Townend, the prodigious mandolin/fiddle and guitar picker for whom the guitar was built, and with whom I played Bluegrass for 5 years in a school boy band. We also played some swing and jazz which is what the Bailey guitar was used for as I recall.

Do you ever sell your guitars because I would be interested in this one if you do.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes
