I bought a guitar!


It’s an OLP href="http://www.olpguitars.com/usa/mm1_trans.htm">MM1, which is a
licensed entry-level copy of the href="http://www.ernieball.com/mmonline/specs/instruments_axis.html">Ernie Ball Axis made overseas.

I’m getting it secondhand (but only barely) from a friend who moved on
to a Les Paul Jr. pretty much right away. It’s coming from Texas, so
it’ll probably show up towards the beginning of next week.

While I’ve played bass semi-pro I’ve never got past fooling around with
guitars, and found myself suffering on my poor-condition old Kay
archtop, so this will be a nice new start. I need to pick up a practice
amp, though, and solicit recommendations — I’m leaning toward a
Pignose or a href="http://www.voxamps.co.uk/products/pathfinder/path10.htm">Vox
Pathfinder, but advice is welcomed. I imagine I’ll be playing
mostly blues and alt-rock but poking at other styles.

Yay, new toy! I’ve been thinking of picking up an electric guitar for
years (since I was back in Montreal, at least), so I’m really looking
forward to this.
