I'm Worth it!

On Friday I visited my local guitar shop.

Wandering around I spotted a new bass guitar hanging on the wall:



OK, now I confess that I have wanted a guitar like this for many years. It is a classic rock guitar shape, not often seen in bass form.

No price. This is sometimes a sign that if you need to ask, you can't afford it.

I unhooked it from the wall and had a quick thunk on it. Very nice to play too. Hm.

So I asked the guy how much it was. He had no idea. The manager had no idea. He rang head office - THEY had no idea.

They looked on the internet and found a discount place selling it for a silly price.

He offered it to me at a really stupid price. He knows I love a bargain.

How could I refuse?

I tried to phone my wife to ask permission but she was in a supermarket where the building blocks the signal.

I bought it.

I love it.

It is my new baby.

PS my wife was OK about me buying it.

Oooh, congrats!

Boy or girl? What's its name?

Rock Chef said...

That is a secret!

But what do you think?

He, he!

Ali said...

Hmm, I think male - and the name is probably something like Victor, or Hugo (but not Victor Hugo) or maybe...Finn!

Jen said...

Hey! Good for you! Everyone deserves a little indulgence now and then. Enjoy!

*If I had to name it, I'd call it:
Viggio. But that's neither here nor there. It's most likely a girl anyway. . .

Terri said...

Oh, it's SO cool! Good for you. You deserve a nice present for taking care of everyone and everything lately.

Rock Chef said...

Ali - Whatever the name it would have to start with V. Male, huh?

Jen - Viggio... I like that!

Terri - Thanks, I thought so too.

Remember.

It's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.

Definitely needs to start with a V! What about Vern? LOL!

This sounds vaguely how I ended up with a 4 wheeler in my garage!!!!

A name??? I think a woman's name, because I think a woman is like a guitar, its all in how you play her. Violet.

Rock Chef said...

Aaron - Easier to ask for, often harder to get!

Kenady - Vern? Doesn't quite have the ring I was looking for...

Kiki - "its all in how you play her" - that is fantastic! So wise, so true!
