The music shop posted about the experience: 

“Jermaine Jackson- legendary Jackson 5- stopped by and purchased a beautiful 12-string guitar for his tour. It is hard to believe it has been nine years since Michael's passing. Jermaine and his brothers are going strong and touring the US; next stop Detroit. 

By the way, the huge rock on his hand was a special made ring to commemorate the Jackson 5 50th anniversary. Jermaine now lives in Nice, France. We do ship to France and other parts of the world.”
