My wife is so freaking AWESOME! I had been so depressed lately, because I've really been wanting a better guitar than the Jackson JS23 I have. While the Jackson is an ok guitar to learn on, it constantly goes out of tune, and putting money into a $200 guitar is wasteful. However, since we are struggling financially at the moment, I was contemplating little by little going forward with polishing the turd anyway. It would have been easier to have a new nut and tuners put on it than saving for a new guitar, because almost every penny we get goes toward bills.
Anyway, I was jamming with a bud around 9pm when my wife comes into the room and asks me to show my bud the guitar I had showed her last week that she liked the color of, so I pulled up the page on MF's site. We talked about it for a bit, and she disappeared. A few minutes later she came back in the room with a piece of paper in her hand. She said "By the way, I came into a bit of money and paid all of our bills current." Then she handed me the paper and said "I also thought this might cheer you up." It was a receipt for:
Ibanez RG450M Electric Guitar Jetstream Green | Musician's Friend
God I my wife!! It's on back order until 4/4, but as soon as it comes in I'll do a proper NGD.
That colour is gorgeous btw. Looks so beautiful with the maple board. You're a lucky man.
