Tornado news from May 31, 2013
Not Totally Missed This Time!!!
Just 11 days after the Tornado in Moore we had another killer storm and this time in El Reno. The store is OK though it has some roof damage from softball size hail.
All the guitars are fine. However, Sandra and I have a 115 year old Farm house South of El Reno that took a direct hit. We were not there at the time. We have been in the process of remodeling the old house and were in transition between our house in Mustang and moving some things as we restored the old house to become our home.
The old farm originally had two large barns and 12 other buildings and the house. The two large barns are completely gone, and 9 of the 12 other buildings are gone with only 3 other out buildings partially standing. The Ef5 Tornado had winds of 300 miles per hour and was over 2.5 miles wide and has now been determined to be the largest ever measured. The tornado blew all the windows out and tore the roof off the house and the second story has wonderful sunlight from above in all the rooms now.
The good news is that no one was there at the time and no one hurt on our property. The old house has sort of been used as the media face of the storm and has been shown on ABC and the Weather Channel quite often. (See the Picture Below)
The Storm Chaser car that was rolled multiple times was across the highway from the house.
Thank you for all your prayers and support.
It has amazed us how many friends care about us from all over the world. We are now cleaning up and hope to get back to normal as soon as possible. Thanks also for your patience. We were without power and had no phone service or internet for a few days. We are back in business now.
Please pray for the families of those 18 people who were killed in this most recent storm. Houses, barns and things can be replaced but our loved ones are our greatest treasure.

Oklahoma Vintage Guitar is a family owned and operated business which has become a major player in the musical instrument trade worldwide in the past ten years. It is owned by Bobby and Sandra Boyles of Mustang, Oklahoma on the West side of Oklahoma City, OK. Bobby is the guy you hear in the soundclips of the guitars and Sandra is very active in the business and are musicians themselves. Bobby has been playing since 1966 and started selling brands such as Martin and Fender in a local music store in 1971 at the age of 15. Needless to say, there are very few people left on the planet who know the instruments and the history better. He has resisted the migration to impersonalization during this corporate big box buy out era and has kept the emphasis of Oklahoma Vintage Guitar on customer service while growing it into a global contender.
Please feel free to call us. We prefer the personal touch and love talking about guitars and gear and Bro. Bobby is even likely to answer the phone. He also answers most of the email questions at Bobby@OklahomaVintageGuitar.com . He responds to email on an hour by hour basis and it is rare that an email doesn't get a same day answer. Shipping, tracking and return questions, he's not really good at but we have others who are.
We Enjoy Helping You With Your Questions!
