It's not every day you see something from your childhood and have the opportunity to buy it back but that's exactly what happened to Trade Me member Tara Nandu-Moke.
Tara's mum scrimped and saved to get him a guitar he wanted as a 15 year old. He loved that guitar but like many musical partnerships they went their separate ways eventually.
That was until Tara was looking at Kramer guitars on Trade Me, and reminisicing about his first musical love, when he found his exact guitar. He told Fairfax that "I flipped through the pictures. It had the stickers in the case I put there as a kid. It had the scratches in the right place."
After a few minor fixes the Kramer is back in his hands and sounds as good as new.
