Happy Dad’s Day from Jailah!
“My two-year-old daughter, Jailah, loves looking through Vintage Guitar with me,” said longtime reader Jason Brekhus. “She is mesmerized by – AND can properly identify – electric and acoustic guitars (thanks to her mom, Deanna), pickups, amps, speakers, and even tubes. I thought it would be fun to take video of her looking through it, but was NOT expecting her stern warning. I’m sure a lot of dads wonder if it’s safe to bring home ‘just one more’ guitar.”
On a recent family trip, Jailah wanted two things in the carry-on – a Dr. Seuss book and her daddy’s VG. “It was the first thing she reached for once we got in the air,” Jason laughed. “Talk about warmin’ a guy’s heart!”
It’s here, Dad’s Day 2018! VG‘s annual ode to fathers who inspire. READ NOW!!
