Guess how my birthday went?

Guess! Guess! Guess!

I'll give you a little hint:

This is a pearl inlay.

A pearl inlay of what, you may ask?


This whole picture-adding thing is taking forever. I hope to get the rest of the pics up tomorrow.

I am now the proud owner of a Gibson ES137. It is beautiful. It is perfect.

I'll tell you now that since long before I ever played guitar, I wanted one. My brother was 16 when he got his Gibson for a birthday present, and I've desperately wanted one since then. Since before my fingertips ever graced a guitar with their presence, I wanted one.

I never thought I would own a Gibson. I truly didn't. Me playing on a Gibson is akin to Ian Miller offering me Big Ben to ride at the county fair.

I spent all day today in awe of the fact that this is mine.

My parents rock.

Happy birthday! I'm starting to think they have a secret inheritance they aren't telling you about: first you get the laptop, then you get the gibson.

Congrats and happy playing!
