You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.

Guitar shopping this week at Long & McQuade, near Toronto, Canada:

  1. AVRI ‘65 Jaguar.  Lovely, but overpriced.  See my Instagram rant on the subject… ;)
  2. SG Special Platinum
  3. Even though the 2 pieces that comprise the top do not match, I still love the colour!
  4. Cadillac Green Gretsch Country Club.  Pricey.  But pretty.
  5. I don’t always go to McDonald’s when I want to get gas.
  6. 3 pretty ‘Pauls.  I may be in the minority, but I love these semi-hollow models.
  7. Here is an interesting one - it’s a Custom Shop VOS SG, but it looks like a former owner “upgraded” the aging on it!  You can see how tarnished the Lyre Vibrola cover plate is, and it’s not “even”, it;s splotchy.  It doesn’t look like a Gibson VOS job to me…Gibson does a great job of tasteful tarnishing.  As a result this guitar is selling for $1850.  Without the extra aging it would be more like $2500 to $3000.  Note to self…NEVER f*ck up a pricey guitar by applying your own amateur aging, unless you are OK with losing 700 - 1200 dollars off the price if you have to sell it one day!
Love is drowning in a deep well, out of secrets and nobody else to tell…Love Is Blindness…
