Wave Invasion meets The Ventures, 1

When Don Wilson, guitarist for the revered '60s instrumental band The Ventures, ("Walk Don't Run," "Surf Rider," "Perfidia") needed a Gibson Chet Atkins nylon string solid body guitar for a June 2007 appearance at Casino Morongo in Cabazon, CA, he called on Wave Invasion's Vince Motel for help. On only a couple days' notice, Vince found the guitar The Ventures was seeking and the rest - as they say - is surf music history. An appreciative Wilson thanked Vince several times from the stage during The Ventures' awesome show. For an enlarged view, click on the photograph.
