I bought a guitar because I was in a bad mood

    Hope it works out. :)

    I was having one of those days yesterday where everything just goes to hell. No matter what I did it just turned out wrong.

    Took a break on The Gear Page and surfed through the Guitar Emporium. Something I never do.

    Saw this guitar and just made a snap decision to make an offer. Offer accepted. I guess it is mine now. :)

    Usually I spend forever researching the company, looking for reviews etc. But this just stuck my fancy and I impulsively made the offer. I paid for it today.

    Wow, that actually looks like it could have a little Mojo going on. I'm a big fan of chicken head knobs too.

    I love a rounded neck heal on a Telecaster... especially when it's a single pickup. It just makes it look like it's going to rock.

    Hope it works out for you, too!

    I've been thinking about the Esquire/single bridge pickup style and that's looks like a great choice.

    Not sure about the motivation, but none of my biscuits. I've had a few arrive at my doorstep for equally questionable reasons...

    Wow, I’ve never tried that.
    Hmmmm.
    Buying guitars has always lifted my mood.
    When I’m angry, frustrated, out-of-sorts, cranky and
    annoyed, I turn to my guitars.
    You’ve inspired me!
    Next time I’m in an “owley” mood (and flush with cash), I’ll try buying a guitar!

    If I bought a guitar ever time I have a bad day where nothing goes right, I would be buying 5 guitars a week! Maybe I need a new job...

    Thanks guys. I really like Cabronita style guitars and the pickup is said to be a 60s Gretsch Blacktop Filtertron. Really all the specs were exactly what I like.

    I wasn't trying to make my day better - it was more that I was a bit more impulsive than I might have been otherwise. :)

    I hate Paisley.

    But I really don't hate that. Tasty.

    I hope all goes well! Great, even.

    I once got a tattoo the same way. It was a mistake. LOL. Never get a tat from a guy named “Butch” when you’re feelin’ surly and only have $50.

    I hope you really regret that decision.

    And sell it to me, cheap, cause you’re all disappointed. Because that looks awesome.

    Enjoy it!
