"My grandpa had this buddy named Lloyd who made mandolins for Gibson. Anyway, Lloyd gave Grandpa a couple of mandolins, which are up in my attic. I'll let you have 'em both for a thousand bucks."
But I don't have the thousand bucks. Something goes wrong at the bank and I can't get it. Of course he won't take a check.
I would like to find at least one "attic" Loar in my lifetime.
