06/10/2005: "Seagull Grand Artist - Love at first sight!"
Well, my new guitar has arrived! I took it to the music store at lunch to verify that the woods were solid spruce and indian rosewood as stated because the documentation I received was for a cheaper cedar top/laminate guitar. A guy at the music store had owned the exact same guitar and verified the woods were as stated and also practically salivated over it. Said he had really loved his Seagull Grand but his wasn't nearly as nice as mine. I then felt bad for giving the guy who sold it to me a hard time.
Anyway, it ends with me having an absolutely beautiful little guitar that fits my frame perfectly. The shorter neck length makes it very comfortable for my little arms and the frets are closer together which is easier on my small fingers. Despite it's size, it has a big sound and I have a feeling will sound even better once I get new Elixer strings on it!
I've told some friends I'll go out tonight but I can't stop fantasizing about my guitar...also, I'm about to fall asleep because my ex-roomie Rod phoned last night and we ended up talking until 2am. I used to be able to go on 4 hours of sleep but now that I'm working out everyday, I need more.
I just sent out a mass email invite to the July 1 opening, which means I'll have to get my act together and start finishing this show. I revisited my Works in Progress gallery and re-read the comments and rankings some of you left way back when. I REALLY appreciate the honest feedback, it so incredibly helpful for me. If any others of you out there haven't had a chance to rank yet, I could always use more.
