Bob says, "The M Series was my first VA, and I''ll never get rid of it." His wife, Jennifer, along with his family bought him this first guitar and the rest was history. "Anytime a new one shows up at the door (without her knowing prior to it showing up), I always look at her and say ''What do you want, you started it!''"
