Takamine D Series (my very first one)

so! before david left i managed to get him to help me choose a guitar!

i'm a total noob that's trying to lead worship by february, so after surveying 3 men (seth, daniel and david) they all pointed me towards getting an acoustic guitar instead of a classical.

i really wanted to take photos but we were rushing around so much that i hardly had time to whip out my camera. one thing i had time for - buying food. thinking i'd be a nice friend and all, i decided to get david a bun! *pats self on back*

but alas, when i passed it to him:

david: what's this?

me: oh, thought u might be hungry so i bought an extra bun. LOOK, I'M SO NICE RIGHT WAHAHAHAHAHA.

david: wah viviaaaaaaaaaaaan. what's inside?

barely had the word 'curry' slipped out of my mouth when i gasped and clapped my hands over my mouth. david just gave the 'WHAT, YOU TRYING TO KILL ME??!?!' face.

he cannot take chili. absolutely cannot. and i'd forgotten!! so much for my kind intentions. i promise u jade, i wasn't trying to poison your man.

haha! but out of goodwill he ate it anyway, and kept glaring at me while nibbling. i think he was also tearing up at one point. heeheehee.

so we found the Takamine for $235 (plus chord book from the 70's - it's incredibly retro, and strap and bag and picks and tuner. fwah! good deal sia!) at Davis in Peninsular. but i didn't buy it coz the top string had a weird twang and buzzed, so i ordered in a new piece.

then we met alvin and hopped over to citylink (this requires another post that should be published... in a few more months) and then to city music where he got another guitar (which we had to collect for him in an hour) and promptly forgot to take his shirt and book that he left at the counter.

imagine how much i had to lug to the airport just so he could bring everything back to Australia. sigh. aunty taking bus you know...

ok that was how i found my guitar. one week later, alvin went down to peninsular with me to collect it and that was my christmas present from him!! YAY.

the giver:

the receiver:

also, guess who gave me that shirt? :)
