Kevin's Birthday Present Arrives

As promised, here is the post dedicated to Kevin's amazing birthday present. You see, a sad thing happened to the guitar we've had since our wedding. We got it as a wedding gift to ourselves with some of that awesome wedding cash people gave us. Nearly seven years later, the $99 special showed us just how much $99 will get you by breaking in a very final way. So it was time for a replacement.
I consulted with my sister Stephie, who has worked in the instrument retail business for several years, and she was able to recommend a fantastic guitar to us. It's a big upgrade, and not only because it's an acoustic electric. It has a great sound, and I have discovered that I really can bar chords - I just can't bar chords on the $99 special.
So here it is, the arrival and grand opening of our new Takamine EG 340 SC. I suspect you'll see evidence of its joyous existence in our family in future posts.
