Classy: Israeli Musician Seeks American Jew Who Sent Him Free Guitar 15 Years Ago

I read this story in the morning and thought it was really sweet. 

First, I admired the Israeli's chutzpah, second I admired the generosity of the person who sent the guitar just because another Jew asked him for one, nicely and sincerely.

I hope they find each other.

Please Help me Find a Person who Changed my Life 15 Years Ago
*** I AM TRYING TO FIND A PERSON WHO CHANGED MY LIFE ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO ***(Please help share this story and photo if you can)Back then, around 1999-2000, I was about 15 and had a dream of becoming a musician - a rock guitar player. Yet, at the time (it changed) my parents did not support this idea of mine, and didn't want to pay for lessons surely not an electric guitar. So, I went to eBay and hoped to find someone nice. I sent messages to a few auctions for guitars that where about to end, saying "I am a poor boy from Israel who needs a guitar, and if you are not going to use this guitar and can't sell it, please send it to me". To my surprise, someone replied and sent me "Hi, I'm a Jew too. This is my present for you for Hanucha". He send the guitar all the way from U.S, and paid for the shipping as well... which was something like 200$.12 years has gone by. I never sold the guitar, I just couldn’t, even when I needed the money. But I did become a musician. Today I am a guitar player, and mostly a composer for video games and films, and.. well... things are going well, as some of you might know. Not to sound too dramatic, but my dream from 12 years ago came true, and it's all thanks to this person. Looking back, I honestly don't know if I would be a musician today if it wasn't for this guitar. Sadly, the computer I used then died, and I have lost his info. I don't know his name, address (I know he was from the U.S)... nothing accept the fact that he changed my life, helped to make my dream come true and that it's an "Ibanez X Explorer Destroyer" made in 1983 12 years later, I want to find him, and at least repay him for the guitar and the shipping, and talk to an awesome guy - show him what his gift to me did. I am hoping that this something facebook can help with, and what makes facebook a wonderful thing. If you can, please share this photo of the guitar he sent me, maybe he is one of your friends!Thanks, Arnold Nesis(He probably knew me as Arik Nesis or Eric Nesis)*** Music:
