Ok ok - I bought 2 things... gear lust in full swing... ;-)
« on: November 22, 2010, 07:33:00 AM »
I buy new gear kind of rarely - and in spurts - and this year turned out to be a big year.

My wife, Heidi, bought me a guitar for my 40th birthday - which I just got last week...   a Fender Jaguar HH - http://www.fender.com/products/search.php?partno=0259200306

I also after many many years of wanting one... picked up an 88 key weighted action digital piano...   http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/keyboards/digitalpianos/p_series/p-95_color_variation/?mode=model

I am ...

happy.

as.

pie.

:-)

Well - ok - I want guitar pedals now... but that'll have to wait - i've blown the music budget for at least a year or so... ;-)

That's great, John. I played a Jaguar HH recently and they are really nice. I've got the bug to buy a new guitar as well. MUST RESIST,  MUST RESIST!  ;D

I was watching a video of Hans Zimmer performing part of the Inception sound track and I saw an amazing looking guitar I had never seen before being used on stage.....now I know what it is!  The link is below. Some interesting electronics scattered around the stage, like a full blown Modular, perhaps his Moog.  Its a beautiful piece of music.
