Was finally able to talk to Larry today ( of Larryland Guitars) and it appears that he's the right guy to get this guitar into a deserving child's hands. I feel a bit petty admitting that I'd like to somehow be involved with the presentation but I guess that's just because I spent a great deal of time and effort with the restoration. I don't want accolades... just would love to see the kid's face light-up. Larry said that he would also provide a gig bag and small amp to accompany the guitar and that this won't be the only instrument that he and his wife will be donating this Christmas season. Anyway... I'll update with any info that I think y'all might want to hear if/ when it happens. Now I just have to determine that I'm really okay with letting this one go to a good home lol.
