AD: Steve Raia for Conklin Guitars

“WE TURN GOOD IDEAS INTO GREAT GUITARS”

From the utmost depths of ’80s guitar ad obscurity, here is Steve Raia of the band Farren and his custom “Candy Cain Guitar.” I can find absolutely nothing about this band or this guitarist on the Internet. Conklin Guitars are still around, of course, and still champions of lesser known players. To wit, I’m familiar with only two of their current endorsers.
