In response to some questions regarding Ted's apartment........

In the early 90s we actually had room there to exist comfortably.

What a hoot! Thanks for sharing these photos.
When I took lessons from Ted in 1984-85 the apartment was rather clean.  I guess he had just recently moved.  I do recall the "waiting room" that was wall-to-wall LP's and cassettes.  Do you have any pictures of that room, or even that apartment?

Hi Paul,
I don't have any photos of Apt. 9. When Ted first moved into the El Dorado (apt.9) he hadn't accumulated as much "stuff" as prior to the move he was living at his parents house taking care of his Grandmother.
Sept. 1984 he moved to no.9, I met him in July of 1992, about 6 months before he moved to apt. 8. When he began the move "next door" we tried to move slowly & methodically, but after about 4 months or so the owner gave him a deadline, as he was upset about Ted seemingly occupying 2 apartments. As the deadline grew closer we just started bring things over haphazardly without time to put anything in order. That's how it began.
Ted had a boundless curiosity & interest in all things. One of his philosophies was "there is always something in all things to learn from " (or something like that) Ted's quest for learning was insurmountable, unquenchable!

Glad you enjoyed my little pictorial. B.

Man, I just LOVE those old Guild archtops (that seem to have turned to gold these days).  Too bad word got out on their beautiful sound.  I keep my eyes glued to Craig's List and Ebay, but they're too dear these days to afford.  One day I hope to make my own.

Hi Mark,
Yes, Ted LOVED his Guilds. They weren't "that inexpensive" when we bought them. I have no idea what they are selling for now. B.

Mark, some vintage Guilds to look for; X-175, CE-100. These are sometimes for sale at reasonable prices.

Barbie, these are great! It's easy to see the progression of 'things' as time went on. I especially like the photo of you with your arms out as if to show the enormity of Ted's collections. It's also good for people to see playing the guitar, even tho' piano is your main instrument.
