After saving up:
part of his Christmas money, all of his birthday money, dog-sitting for a neighbor AND selling his DS Lite with 5 games on Craig's list...
Andrew was able to buy a new ELECTRIC GUITAR today!
Hooray! Six months of waiting and saving isn't easy for a guy who is 11 and it is quite an accomplishment! I'd say he's a real musician! : )
I don't know a thing about electric or acoustic guitars but I know that Andrew and Dad have been talking about humbuckers, and HSS's, Fender Strats, Mexican Strats, sunbursts and a whole lot of other things in earnest for hours almost daily. They are really cute. I just smile and nod.
And I'm not sure who is MORE excited today, Andrew or Dad.
-Have I mentioned my hubby's motto? It is 'You can never own too many guitars' and thanks to my parents he has the t-shirt to prove it. LOL (in this room alone, I can see 5 of them)
So, there are two happy guitarists around here who are going to jam all weekend, I'm sure.
~Proud of you, Andrew! That took a lot of self control and patience. So, glad the Lord blessed you with a great deal and a beautiful guitar! : ) Love ya!
