Very Good

I’m not one of those guys that spends a fortune buying up a million little toy figurines and places them all around my desk like this guy. I had a friend who did that in high school, but instead he put them in a massive glass case that he probably paid way too much for. It was like an expensive and luxurious glass tower for his toys while the rest of his room languished in his own filth. However, having plastic or vinyl around – as long as it’s the ultimate in cool – isn’t such a terrible thing when it doesn’t get out of hand. I already have enough toys to last me a life time – trust me when I say three is too much – but if I  had the cash to spend I’d take my chances with these, limited to only 200 pieces world wide. Dopetastic.

The other day I just did the second shoot out between the Gibson J45 and the Martin HD28. So far the J45 is winning. To me the Martin seemed… too bright, which is odd considering every acoustic player I’ve run into treasures the brightness that’s associated with the Martin along with the volume it gives. Maybe I’m just dumb.

A Shoot Out

Instead of taking the bus home after school I took a detour to Long and McQuade to try out two guitars I’ve been looking at, the Gibson J45 and the Martin HD28. Initial play tests have come up inconclusive: I can’t decide. Both sound amazing. However, I had my heart set out for the J45 – because the dude from The Fray looked so rad rocking it – but after trying out the Martin I had a feeling that perhaps that might bring me more joy over the J45. The reason was that once I picked up that bad boy there was an instant spark. I started jamming away, not caring who was listening to my poorly played versions of Jack Johnson songs in the store. It took me a second crack at the J45 to really get into it.

But I don’t know, maybe it’ll come down to which looks cooler.
