Who can answer the age-old question “Why am I here?” Sebastian, the Old Man, encounters his answers on his daily strolls. They come not through long essays or deep philosophical musings but through encounters with his friends—a young fatherless boy named Miguel, a Russian immigrant called Alexi, and Vivian, a retired nurse. He has finished his book, an ardent writing task, believing that one’s essence unfolds like a novel with chapters penned by life’s trials and joys. His response to the trials and joys offers a glimpse into his soul. Vivian and Sebastian visit the town library, where he places his book on a shelf as if letting it go for one last time. For whom? Then Vivian walks him home and they bid good night. The next day fearing a shocking surprise, she brings the doctor. Together they find a present marked for Miguel at the foot of the Old Man’s bed. They both see the nearly empty pill bottle, but Vivian suspects the worst.

More astounding stories of rare guitar finds and the music legends who owned them. Do you dream of finding a 1954 Stratocaster or 1952 Gibson Les Paul online, at a garage sale, or in the local penny saver? How about virtually rubbing elbows with one of your favorite rock legends? Following up his first-of-its-kind The Strat in the Attic, musician, journalist, and "guitarchaeologist" Deke Dickerson shares the stories behind dozens of more astounding finds including: A rarer-than-hens-teeth 1966 Hallmark Swept-Wing that originally belonged to Robbie Krieger of the Doors, stashed away in an attic in Alaska for forty years! A crazy-valuable 1958 Gibson Flying V belonging to a Chicago bluesman--who, it turns out, also happens to have an equally rare 1958 Gibson Explorer! An out-of-the-blue, a "to whom it may concern" email leads the author to a trailer park in Salem, Oregon, where one of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys' original 1940's Epiphone Emperor archtops is waiting to be purchased for a song! Luthier R.C. Allen relates the tales of buying Nat "King" Cole Trio guitarist Oscar Moore's Stromberg Master 400 archtop and of being gifted a 1953 Standel amp from Merle Travis! Buddy Merrill, the amazingly talented guitarist from the Lawrence Welk show, gives his 1970 Micro-Frets Huntington to the author, but only if he "promises to PRACTICE." Photos of the guitars and other exciting memorabilia round out a package that no vintage-guitar aficionado will want to be without!
