A few days ago, my son-in-law celebrated his birthday. His wife (my step-daughter) bought him an acoustic guitar for Christmas. In fact, their whole family is jumping into music - my wife and I picked up a pink Uke for the littlest granddaughter, etc.
So, since I just bought the Blackstar and have a couple guitars I play, I decided to fork over the Epi SG Special that I'd tucked away in my gun cabinet, along with the Peavey 210 chorus I'd been playing, two leads, a tuner, bag, etc.
He's stoked. I doubt he's going to take up metal, but he'll play something loud.
I'm looking forward to hearing from him when the kids come back to visit.
That's dam cool.
