I have as well...years ago I gave my nephew a nice BC Rich, which I found out later he sold. Gave a couple friends acoustic guitars, not real nice ones. And I gave a guy I knew son a epi electric a small amp and a distortion pedal cause he liked guitars and i knew his father would never get him one...that kid ALWAYS waves when I drive by....makes my day cause I know how much he liked getting the guitar and amp!!
