Music Store Customer Anonymously Gifts Kid a Dimebag Darrell Guitar

Fallon, a youngster affected by Williams Syndrome, dreamed of owning a Dean Dimebag Darrell ML guitar – the late Pantera guitarist’s signature model. Thanks to a kind, anonymous music store customer, that dream came true.

Music store JB Hart Music Co., Inc. in Grand Junction, Colorado shared the touching story about Facebookproviding a backstory on Fallon and the guitar, which have become inseparable over the past two years.

Fallon would often come into the store and specifically ask to play the “Pantera” guitar, i.e. the Dean Dimebag Darrell ML guitar, and proceed to write down his favorite Pantera riffs.

“We were shocked he knew some Dimebag riffs,” the outlet wrote in its Facebook post. “Fallon is affected by Williams Syndrome and has an excellent knowledge and love for music. His dream was to own this guitar.

Williams syndrome is a genetic disease that affects different parts of the body, especially facial features, and also has a moderate impact on the performance of intellectual tasks.

Eight months ago, a customer noticed Fallon’s excitement while playing the instrument.

“This customer was so moved by this that he returned to the store later, purchased the guitar, and asked us to give Fallon the guitar anonymously the next time we saw him,” the store wrote.

However, Fallon didn’t show up at the store until last week. He had apparently moved to Texas with his family – store owners had searched for him to no avail – but returned to visit during the holidays.

“It was a wonderful experience to give Fallon her dream guitar as a gift from a kind stranger,” the outlet wrote. “His mother burst into tears and Fallon beamed with excitement. It was a special moment. There are still good people in this world.

The Facebook post has since gone viral, even reaching Camp Pantera, who commented and shared the post on the band’s official Facebook page: “Happy New Year! What an incredible story. Enjoy your new Dimebag Darrell, Fallon guitar.
