New

The last time I bought a new guitar I think at least three Beatles were still kicking a ball. It felt really good walking into Dave Mann's this morning knowing I'd be walking out with something new and shiny. Coincidentally it was the same guitar emporium where I'd bought its predecessor all those years ago; also on a Saturday morning, if memory serves.
I had the guitar in my sights within ten minutes of crossing the threshold and agreed a price a handful of minutes later. I bet it was was no more than twenty minutes after entering the shop with a dream in my head and a burning hole in my pocket that I was leaving with a gig bag over my shoulder and a much slimmer wallet.

Guitar: Dave Mann Music
Sofa: Ikea

    1. Yes, it is nice. It actually 'rings', believe it or not.

  2. Can't bigify the image to see the make. Looks good. What is it? Last guitar I bought (or had bought for me, rather) was 12 years ago. A Fender 12 string from my wife, for my 50th birthday.

    1. 12 strings? 'Why, that's twice as much' - to quote Oliver Hardy.
