    NGD: Gave into the 'Guitar Show' temptation

    So I went to a Guitar Show held in Melbourne so naturally I knew I was gonna cop some financial blow. Today's impulse purchase came in the form of this:

    Danelectro DC59 12 string.

    That makes my second Dan to date (first was the crackle sitar). It's exactly what you'd expect from a Danelectro, the cheap but very charming look, great feel and that sound that only comes from this kind of construction and lipstick pickups. Having the 12 string version just has that wonderful jangle, great for those Jimmy Page, Brian Jones and other dad moments.

    This will probably be on almost all my future studio endeavors whenever I need that sprinkle of fairy dust. Kinda wish I bought this much earlier...

    Nice. I love Danos. Kinda jealous you guys got a guitar show and we get nothing here in Sydney. Can't even keep fucking venues open these days.

    Those are cool - when you need one, there's nothing else that's quite the same.

    Wow. That cool, 70's Nehru jacket vibe. I love that.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...
