1959 Fender Stratocaster – An inspirational story on paying it forward

Pay It Forward

Mickey “Guitar” Baker gave his 1959 Fender Stratocaster to Ivan Horn on one condition. To pass it on to another guitar player when his time came. Sadly, Ivan Horn, passed away earlier this year since cancer had taken over. Shortly before his death he called Rune Funch and met him in a cafe and told Rune that he was the one to now own the Stratocaster…on the same condition.

We heard this story through friends of V&R and thought this was such a beautiful and an inspirational story that we got in contact with Rune and asked if he would tell us the full story on camera. Rune agreed, which we are very thankful for, and below you can see and hear Rune lay it out in his own words. We full this story is important to tell and it´s something we could all learn a great lesson from.

Documented in dedication, deep respect and memory of Ivan Horn and Mickey “Guitar” Baker.
