I keep telling myself to no buy anymore guitars, but I also told myself that I would only get guitars that absolutely give me a boner. And it so happens to be high dollar guitars that it happens.
Case in point, I knew that I wanted a Gibson Custom Classic, but I didn't expect the one that I wanted to be at my local GC. And its the same one that I first played 3 years ago. After talking about the price of the guitar with the sales manager, who's also a good friend of mine, I was introduced with a price that I couldn't say no.
But then, I got nervous and some cases "afraid." Why? Well because I was about to debt free with the tax return I was about to get next week to pay off the GC Store card and be on my way to becoming debt free. I made my first attempt to call my wife to stop me from making this purchase, no answer. I resumed the process only to be delayed while the manager was double checking on certain things.
Then the wife called! Chills went down on my spine! I couldn't keep this as secret, no way, I love her way to much to hide this as a secret. So I told her what I was doing...
"WHAT? REALLY?" she replied concerned
I was ready to stop it from there, I was ready to tell my buddy "Dude, sorry, I can't right now..."
But then my wife asked
"Why do you want it? Is this one of those guitars that is rare to come by?"
"Yes" I replied
"Well, I can't be mad at you, because I know you can pay it off and you are good with money..."
"DAMMIT WOMAN! WHY ARE YOU TOO GOOD!!??"
Damn, I love my wife.
So here she is. Ms. Guilty Gibson
Now to cut my Guitar Center Card.....
