    My little brother has earned this

    In 45 minutes, I will be buying my little brother his very own guitar. He doesn't know this, he's 7 hours away lol - he gets it on May 1st when I get home.

    I have a guy bringing over a Jay Turser V (looks good), no case (has a box), he said he'll take $125 for it. I gotta run to the bank before he comes, and probably eat dinner too.

    yeah, buying a guitar when I should be studying for exams - I'm awesome LOL. I checked out one of his facebook videos of just him playing - his first song sounds better then mine did!

    This guitar was supposed to be a birthday present, but the price is right, the guitar looks decent (only has 1 very minor issue), and i dont feel like hiding it between now and mid-june. I just hope it goes over ok - gonna ask my sisters to pitch in as well, what with the bday factor.

    Pics when it gets here!

    I shoulda done this for my bro years ago, we woulda made a great fuckin' band... we're one of those brother-sets connected by brainwaves. Of course, I probably would have gotten him a sweet Daisy Rock just to be a dick.

    You should pay a prostitute to deliver it and make sure it has an even happier ending.

    I'm not sure how you get a hold of them, or who it is, but apparently someone runs a company where you can hire a stripper ape

    Literally a guy in an ape costume, in a sexy dress, who then does a strip tease until they're a naked ape

    aaron, I so have to do that to people!

    guys, my brother is 14 turning 15 this year. He's been playing my old squier affinity strat, which I had attemptedly set up on a few occasions. The body is ok on the squier, but the frets just feel hideous - I want to give it a new neck lol.

    I was supposed to teach him guitar, I never really did. I've corrected him on form, shown him a couple of chords, and told him to practise certain things. He has a video of somethign he wrote on facebook, and it sounds better then the first song I wrote, by a long shot lol (all his chords work together ). I did buy him a "teach yourself guitar" book, which was the same book I learned on many years ago. I think he used it a bit.

    It's kind of atonement, it's kind of apology, but I also think that he deserves something for what he's done on his own. I plan on jamming with him and his friends to see how they do hehe.

    Next item: a cheap-as-fuck head that will run a 16ohm cab. He can pay for part of it though, he's old enough to work and used to have a job.

    There will be jamming this summer
