(#23) Music Stores in Toronto: Ring Music
Ring music, at 90 Harbord, is a music store that Bruce is known to have frequented (and still may.) The two Flying V style guitars (a blue one and an orange one) he owned in the early 80's were commisioned by Ring Music and built by Imre de Jong, a skilled electric guitar luthier.
Some of Bruce's guitars have been sold through the store, also. Due to its location near the College/Spadina/Kensington area, we might guess that Bruce frequented it more when he lived in this area of the city in the 1980's.
