Over the last couple of years, a kid named Fallon would travel over an hour to visit a music store in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Fallon has Williams Syndrome and he would drive over an hour to visit J.B. Hart Music Co., Inc. Each time he went, his request was to play the “Pantera guitar,” which was also known as the Dean Dimebag Darrell ML Guitar. Fallon loves music and has a lot of knowledge about it, especially some Dimebag riffs according to a spokesperson for J.B. Hart Music Co., Inc. His dream has always been to own the Pantera guitar.
Eight months ago, while Fallon was in the store playing it, a customer took notice. The customer was so moved that he returned to the store later, purchased the guitar, and asked the music shop to give it to Fallon anonymously the next time he was in. Unbeknownst to the employees of J.B. Hart Music Co., Inc Fallon and his family had moved to Texas. It wasn’t until December 31st when they were back in town for a visit, and they stopped by the store.
During their visit, the J.B. Hart Music Co., Inc employees were able to gift Fallon the guitar bought for him by a stranger months ago. They shared in a Facebook post, “It was a wonderful experience to gift Fallon his dream guitar as a gift from a kind stranger. His mom burst into tears, and Fallon beamed with excitement. It was a special moment. There are still good people in this world.
