    That is absolutely delightful.

    The CITES regulations paperwork must have been a pain though :)

    What does this CITES regulations paperwork mean? Is this an endangered bonsai!? :unsure:

    I regret selling one guitar years ago. When I was 17 I saw this Fender Jaguar for sale and I had decided I must get it. I didn't have much money in those days so I said to the guy in the shop here is £10 I want to put a deposit on it. he laughed and said ok I'll hold it for you. I schemed and worked extra shifts as I was part time in college. turned up with the money and took the guitar home.

    Only for one random day a year or so later to for no reason at all take it down denmark street spur of the moment traded it in for probably less than it was worth and walked out with a epiphone explorer that I had never even thought about buying before.

    Oh wtf! This is exactly what I mean about sentimentally special. All that hard work! [crying]

    Ducky was the first guitar I felt really comfortable with. I had WAY superior guitars, mind you. She was a '74 yellow Mustang, like painted with a brush in a garage, yellow. Her intonation was bad but if I kept above the 9th fret...I felt like she was about as mediocre as me so I played her hard and often and learned and learned. Then I got better at guitar and outgrew Ducky. I handed her off to a man who wanted a gift for his son who was turning 13. Guy had a horde of vintage stuff so he thought he'd get the boy something with Mojo. I said, "so long, Ducky." And I hope she's treated well, but no regrets here.

    You are a dam good singer/writer, do not stop chasing your dream, let it flow thru you. Your songs touch other people, that is a rare blessing. Pour yourself into it, don't let anything get in the way of your writing, your vision of what the song should sound like, how you hear it in your head.
    Believe in yourself, trust yourself, don't let critics or suggestions plan...
