... So apparently spending a small fortune on a new guitar this year was not enough. Now I've spent another small fortune on an amp. Just got off the phone with my guitar shop and have just put a down payment on a Mesa Boogie Mark V!!!!! I have been looking for a new amp half heartedly for a while now but finally decided to go for broke.... Literally laugh.gif

Now to break the news to the boyfriend cool.gif

Congrats!! You won't regret it smile.gif


--------------------
"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Ok so just got home from work and broke the news to the boyfriend

conversation went like this

Me - "hey babe how was work?"
Him -"busy, how about you?"
Me - "Slow but kinda expensive..."

cue inquisitive look

Him -" What did you buy this time?"
Me -" A new amp"
Him -" How much???"
Me - "You probably don't want to know"

cue perturbed look

Him - "Whatever, I suppose"... stomps off and starts playing Call of Duty smile.gif

Good news is I still have a roof over my head laugh.gif laugh.gif But I don't think he's speaking to me at the moment, but he'll get over it. Besides I'm actually paying for it, he just payed the deposit which was only a couple hundred bucks. Now again I play the waiting game... better not have the issues I had with the guitar mellow.gif

Edit: Thanks Kris and everyone smile.gif This is a really great amp and I promise I'll provide whatever I can, review and sound wise, when it finally arrives and I get to play with it. I also forgot to mention it's the combo I'm getting.

OK that isn't even funny ohmy.gif unsure.gif

Actually it's not the same store as they were not a Mesa Boogie dealer but I've never dealt with this store so I'm still a little worried but fingers crossed smile.gif

Thanks again everyone. I'm really super excited... bonus is my stitches come out tomorrow too so back to playing YAY!!! So much to catch up on.

Awesome Susan! When you get a chance, hit me up and give some advice on mastering wealth.. laugh.gif I'm kidding of course, great acquisition for sure. A guy locally has a mint Lonestar combo for $900 and it's making my wallet water.. laugh.gif
