The King of Rock & Roll aka Elvis Presley passed on this date August 16, 1977. Elvis was a kind soul and my Mom and Dad have many stories of him when he visited our shop in July of 1975 with his 1936 @gibsonguitar L5 model. The pickguard, pickup/volume and tone holes in the body where plugged up with finish touch-ups and the tailpiece removed by my Dad (Dr. Phil Petillo) when he worked on it and made it original again. This guitar from what I hear was used on the "Love Me Tender" recording. My friend @garrytallentofficial texted me these display pics, thanks Garry! Rest In Peace @elvis and bless you for bridging the GAP between music and race! Check out all SEVEN SWIPE PICS!
