i am in love again

i started off the day looking at a couple of flawed acoustics up in the berkeley hills, an old 50’s gibson and a newer fender. then i drove down claremont and wound up at 51st and telegraph, in the pawnbroking shop of my former landlord, saul gevertz. i played a yamaha that was really very nice, and had a nice haggling session to boot, but told the guys i would be back and needed to think about it.
then i went to guitar center el cerrito and played every single guitar in the acoustic room. i picked up this one, a gibson songwriter deluxe, and everything just fell into place. made in bozeman montana, where i spent part of my childhood. so. fucking. good. it makes my heart hurt it’s so sweet.
UPDATE: this is the best acoustic guitar i have played. period. this reviewer apparently had the same experience i’m having. it’s hard to keep my nose out of the sound hole, because the wood smells so good.
UPDATE 2: i took her over to the gallery and plugged into the system and played until i busted a string. (about 3 hours). with the eq flat, it is the cleanest, tastiest acoustic/electric i have played. even with the ungodly sound pressure level of a dance club sound system, i was unable to get feedback until i turned one of the 15″ mackie subs to full and practically straddled it with the guitar in my hands.
