Boz was a well liked CBG'er who was in the thick of things here for years; he passed away a year or two ago, from cancer, but his positive vibes are one of the reasons this forum is maybe the most civil of any existing. He was a close friend to many of us here; personally, I swapped recordings with him frequently, so I have alot of his stuff and it still makes me smile. To have one of his guitars would be a very touching thing. There might be a mix of joy and melancholy in that guitar.

Well said Jeff. BOZ was a great guy. His son Wil & I are close friends.
I played a couple Festivals with BOZ and enjoyed every moment I spent with him & his family.

Yep, we're better for having known Boz.
