I'm also looking into replacing the guitar that duchez sent me a few years back. While it's an okay guitar, it's a wide-body and I find it rather difficult to play (which is the reason she gave it to me in the first place). I feel that getting a newer, smaller guitar would also convince me that it's worth my while learning to play better. I'd also like to get rid of my broken electric bass and pick up an acoustic at some point.
I'm really hoping that this year will turn out to be more musical than recent years. I used to be quite fond of making music in one way or another, and I did it on a regular basis. Lately, though, it's fallen by the wayside as I pursue other things. I'm determined to change that, though.
