Cherry, Oh Cherry!
I think I've found my steel-string acoustic baby. Her name is Cherry, a Peal, solid spruce-top in Cherry Sunburst colour (hence the name). No mother-of-pearl, no spikey edges and low action, thank God. Classic Dreadnought shaped, but with cutaway. A fusion of traditional folksy-ness and new-fangled funk. Potential to custom-add a pickguard of my choice and pickups if I ever want to play at a volume other people can hear. Free servicing and year-long warranty, with padded gig-bag.
But over-budget. Please direct all donations and advanced birthday money here.
And on a completely unrelated note, the O.C.'s "12 Days of Chrismukkah" song (from the official website) is mildly amusing. Not as funny as the Singaporean version of the 12 Days, which had me and Mich rotfl-ing, but funny in a "Hehh... *corners of mouth turn up a little*" sort of way. It's very soap-opera appropriate. For non-watchers, Chrismukkah is a hybrid of Christmas and Hanukkah, and just about the most important holiday of the year:
On the 12th day of Christmukkah my true love gave to me:
12 Beemers Beeping
11 Hissy Fits
10 Trophy Wives
8 Gardners Gardening
7 Couples Cheating
6 Cheeks A-Slapping
4 Broken Hearts
3 Broken Homes
2 Smashed Walls
And a Boy-Toy from The O.C.!
Ryan's mine, by the way. Hehh... *corners of mouth turn up a little*
[well, the pictures aren't going to take themselves!]
