So for my birthday my incredibly awesome wife bought me an SE Angelus Custom and pulled and an epic prank on me (see the thread in the acoustic forum!!) But this afternoon, after running errands (on my birthday and day off nonetheless!), we stopped by the GC because I wanted to buy a powered speaker. As I always do, I perused the used section. And then my jaw went limp, the drooling started, and my knees started to quack. Inside of a locked case, for an unbelievable price, was a '98 McCarty in Aquamarine. If nothing else, I had to play it....and I did. Such an easy instrument!! I knew that I had to have it but how do I convince the wife considering she just bought me a new acoustic??? So I bought my powered speaker and we left. But I could not get this guitar out of my head. She said "Give it two hours" so I did....the guitar and its incredible action was still on my mind....but how to pay for it? Turns out that she has been sitting on a Guitar Center credit card for almost a year now. Never activated nor did she ever tell me about it. Probably a good thing! But this deal was too good to pass up...... So I started the day the day with a new PRS acoustic and closed it out with a new to me McCarty (pics to come tomorrow!!!!) By God my wife is awesome!!! And yes, I reciprocate!
