I am, as my roommates will readily testify…addicted to things with strings. I will happily pluck around on a mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, ukulele, whatever…without actually knowing much about it. (It is on my goal list to acquire a good working knowledge of at least two of these sooner than later).
My first and only true love, however, is guitar. And I have a great one…I bought a Martin OM-15 when I graduated from high school and it has been my brilliant-sounding steadfast companion ever since. I had a Taylor for a while but sold it last year and bought an Art and Lutherie parlor guitar, which I keep out by my desk and use as a writing guitar.
I don’t usually need much of a reason to blow some cash on an instrument, though no acoustics have called me name lately because my Martin is, as I said, THE BEST GUITAR EVER FOR ME. However, traveling is hard on instruments and I do a lot of it.
I’ve had it for 12 hours now…I was staring out the window for the FedEx truck to come all morning. So far so good. I even folded it up and popped it back open and it was pretty much still in tune. Very cool.
It gets road-tested on May 30th when I fly to Seattle. Watch out, TSA! I’ve got music and it’s coming with me.
