Wow! Frankie was not old enough to die. Was he ill? I remember when I first learned that Frankie had a day gig as a teacher.
If Frankie’s family is amenable to it, I believe that Casper belongs in the PRS archives. Frankie was an early adopter. He took an expensive chance on an unproven company (the Standard 24 was simply “The PRS Guitar” at that point in time). The world needs to see a PRS guitar that was loved that much. Casper is true relic that got that way by Frankie playing it for decades. Frankie played that guitar like it owed him money.
Whew! I agree at least a little bit. But "that belongs in a museum" is a whole other thing when there are people alive who may have a vested interest in the artifact. I don't know who might agree or disagree but hope that doesn't devolve into a nasty fight.
