Warning: although Photoshop was used to identify the guitar, this isn't really photography-related, but this story is too good not to share.
20 years ago, during my freshman year of college, I worked all summer to afford a Taylor 414ce guitar. At the time it was the most expensive thing I'd ever purchased and it has a lot of sentimental value to me. For the last 3 years, while I was renting a house in Puerto Rico, I left my guitar locked up in a closet in a rental property in the states. Last week, after 3 years, I went to pick up my guitar and it wasn't there.
I assumed I had moved the guitar and it would eventually turn up but out of curiosity, I decided to see how much used Taylor guitars were going for on Facebook Marketplace. The very first guitar for sale had been posted earlier that day and it happened to be an almost identical Taylor 414ce guitar. At first, I just thought it was a coincidence but after comparing it to an old blurry picture of my guitar, I started to suspect that it could actually be my missing guitar.
I won't spoil the story for you here. Watch the video above to see one of the strangest, luckiest, coincidental stories of my life unfold in 48 hours.
