Igor's Got a Brand New Axe!
I finally did it. I am now a guitar owner. I resisted and resisted, because guitar is so not my instrument, but I've got three years to get proficient. I have plans for something guitar-centric then. Plus, I'd like to play live and write tunes that I can actually play. So it all works out. What you're looking at here is an Epiphone SG Special. It's the best, cheapest guitar I could find. As luck would have it, I was able to get the so called "player's package." They give you a gig bag, a strap, a cord (which didn't work), a tuner, sundry other trinkets and this tiny and cute but surprisingly loud amp:
Even at mid-volume, this thing makes everything in my apartment rattle. It's quite thrilling. And all for the low, low price of around $250. I've already broken a string, so I'm totally on my way.
