I wait paitently for my first time.

Recommended Posts

I waited and I waited so patiently for my first time... to get a Gibson. I had enough money for about 3 years to get a Gibson but I wanted to wait till' I was worthy. I'd rather have a Epiphone and practice than to have a Gibson and not know how to play so thats what I did. This Christmas I said that I wanted to get myself something nice and on my 10th year... 1 decade of playing guitar I said "It's time". I go to GuitarCenter (Only place Ill ever buy a guitar) and looked at the Gibsons. I tryed out just about all the Les Paul but none of them felt right and finally I said "Let me see a SG" and so they handed me a Gibson SG Standard in Cherry Red and as soon as I plugged her in I fell in love lol. It sounded soooo much sexier than any of my Fenders. And after playing it after about an hour I couldnt put her down and so I bought the SG. I didnt bother to play any other SG or see any other color. I paid over $1,800 for her but its worth every penny. Since then I changed her straplocks, got her some new bridges and got her action adjusted for low quick playing. Here she is!!!

wait... $1800? are we talking Canadian dollars here?

 

That is my question too. 1800 USD for a new SG Standard is crazy. I usually see them for around 1200. I am not trying to dog your new axe or rain on your parade, just want to know.

A movie ticket here costs $10 and a small popcorn is $4.50 and a at the McDonalds Dollar Menu a cheeseburger costs $2!!! lol j/k about the mcdonalds thing but ya everything is expensive here or at least where I live. I dont want to go complaining to Gibson that I paid too much or go to GC and throw the guitar back in their face. Its my guitar and I paid for it, Im not complaining and Im happy with my Gibson...

I got a blah for $blah at my music store. Seriously get a life. When you buy an instrument as long as it's worth that price to you who gives a damn?! It took me a looong time time for me to find a Gibson i was REALLY happy with. It's fairly easy to find a cheap Gibson, but cheaper doesn't= better. Especially with the current anarchic output of Gibson.

 

Raining on someones parade just for the sake of it is is plain sh!tt and petty.
