Four time All-Star, World Series Champion Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko came guitar shopping just two weeks after hitting his 400th career Major League home run. We were "all-star" struck when Paul came in - we meet rock stars every day; but Konerko is a baseball superstar. He hit the the first grand slam in White Sox World Series history creating the momentum that led to the Sox 4 game sweep over the Houston Astros in the 2005 series.
Paul picked out a Gibson SG, we can only assume that after becoming the 48th ball player to hit 400 home runs, baseball is no longer a challenge so now he's off to master the guitar.
Go Sox! and Cubs! We love them both.
You wouldn't ask us to choose Zeppelin or Sabbath? Gibson or Fender? Would you?
