    about 4 months ago i sold all my guitar stuff,and quit the guitar πŸ™ (have been trying to learn how to play the thing on and off for 20+ years).

    obviously i regretted the decision very soon after (and seeing roger waters at wembly,and manic street preachers at the coulston hall didn’t help matters.
    well last month i sold my tarmac sport (to the shop i bought it from)and they kindly ordered my new axe for me (no credit card unfortunately).

    i now have one of these bad boys πŸ˜€ ((not my pics unfortunately,i sold my digi camera earlier in the year).

    it’s bloomin awesome man 8)

    last weekend i also managed to be able to afford a new amp (and effects pedal too)

    it’s the vt 40+ version.

    and finally this bad boy too πŸ™‚

    i cannot put into words,just how happy i am (my guitar playing is still rubbish though 😳 i won’t be buying anything else for a long time now (as i’m skint πŸ˜† i just want to keep playing them (and i have even been trying to improvise a bit,which i suck at but am going to keep trying to do/improve.

    have you bought any musical items recently,and if so how are you getting on with it?

    One of these lovely things (although as it’s my Christmas present, I’m not allowed to have it until Christmas πŸ™ )

    my seven yr old is super into the ramones at the moment, among other bands.
    i play drums and guitar, but play lefty, so he’s not able to learn properly yet.
    he’s started on ukulele and he’ll be getting a nice starter gitter fer xmas.
    i thought 80 quid for anything with fender on it was pretty darned good:

    Love that Faith guitar, almost bought one once when they first hit the country.

    Really regret not getting it now. πŸ˜₯

    I’m weighing up the possibility of getting something “custom” from warmoth (custom as in bits they have in stock!)
    Was left a bit of money and thought a guitar would be quite a nice thing to get (I do play, very badly!!)
    Not rushing the process though!
    What do you reckon to this body.

    jimster, I was considering one of the Mahogony Faith range, but just ended up liking the Naked too much!

    jimster, I was considering one of the Mahogony Faith range, but just ended up liking the Naked too much!

    The shop where I tried it only had the Naked in stock, was there any difference in tone between the two?

    Premier Icon piedi di formaggio

    Yes, the Mahogany was a bit warmer, but still quite bright. The Naked not quite so ‘big’ on the low end if you know what I mean.

    The Naked is an Electro Acoustic, the Mahogany is just plain old acoustic.

    Both were great and although I like the look of the Mahogany now, I’m not sure I would in a few years time, whereas the Naked, I think I’ll still like. Obviously the Naked will pick up some colouration from playing it as my greasy pores come into contact with it.

    I’d quite happily have any of the Faith guitars!

    Here’s a good run through of the main models in the range

    Cheapy mandolin for my birthday. Great fun.

    30 years of guitar playing have not prepared me for how much hurt it could inflict with one F chord.

    Slightly off-topic, can anybody recommend a good place for selling music equipment? Sort of like the classifieds here but less bikey.
    I have a couple of drum kits and some guitar effects that, though much loved, probably aren’t going to get used properly again.

    for drum gear, try http://www.drumclassifieds.co.uk

    or you could take a risk on not getting either a sale or what you want pricewise, by putting them on a well known internet auction site… or on gumtree…

    Treated myself to an electronic kit so I can practice at home – one that has a proper Kick pad so I ca use a my double bass pedal, and that has an aux in so I can play along to the songs I’m supposed to be learning

    How much for the micro synth?
    ~Which Jam man is it please?

    Don’t talk about FX pedals, I’m a barely reformed addict! And I’m meant to be selling musical gear, not buying it – like these things:

    Hmm… I have recently bought a Gibson Les Paul Studio, a second TC Electronic Ditto looper (which means I now have five or something different loop pedals now…) and I appear to have ordered a Fender Thinline Cabronita too.

    Anyone want to sell me an E-Bow2? Not that I’m hooked on buying new gadgets or anything…

    Those thinline cabronitas look lush – cant stop stopping and drooling at the 2 in the LGS window

    Link didn’t work Trevron!

    And, not content to get just a ‘normal’ Cabronita. I have a rosewood fingerboard one in the works.

    Not quite where the rest of the thread has been heading, but…
