"I'd like you to meet my 1983 Electra X935CS Pro Endorser. This guitar is more like my best friend. No really, I've spent more countless hours with it than most people I know. It's my favorite (I have 12) because, firstly, look at it, it's just beautiful! It has never let me down, it stays in tune no matter what I do to it. It was not my first, but it was the first one that I really became attached to. It was the only electric guitar that I played on stage during my ten years with a working band. I don't play out anymore, but I do play often, and my Electra is always there. - Pete Palmeri"
