A letter, previously only ever seen by Tommy & Karen, from the ‘THEN’ owner of Tommy's famous ‘WHITEY’ Strat with the Tele neck. BTW, this isn't the first time that Tommy was mistakenly referred to as “TOMMY BOLAND” :)

For the record, the guitar was NOT on any Zephyr album cover and Rob Cooksey was Deep Purple's manager, who was NOT the recipient of this correspondence :)

The letter and the 2 photos (in original form) will be part of Kare Bare's ‘Tommy Bolin Lives & Gives’ auction...

A HUGE thank you to Kare Bare for sharing this extremely RARE item with us.

The Tommy Bolin Memorial Fund was originally established by Johnnie Bolin in memory of his brother, in association with the Siouxland Community Foundation. The Ultimate mission is simple... To preserve the music, the memory and the legacy of Tommy Bolin.
