Hello all-i would have to say my best gift for christmas was watching my 10 year old daughter play the drums in her school concert.they did a christmas concert she has been learning for the last 2 years and they sounded great.My other gift was --and this one seems to stir up trouble sometimes---an Esteban guitar.and it works i have read nothing but horrible reviews but mine is ok.Really it is.:)

Sure, all you have to do is ask what it is they want, and you're sure to get a complete GAS list in a heartbeat, specs and all. :lol:

Not to be a technical jerk, but he is playing a Wal bass.

Fine by me. I've probably only ever heard 10 Tool songs and I know nothing about bass guitars. :lol:

Schecters look nice to me too, but I always read mixed reviews. Otherwise I would have put even more thought into buying Bish's C1+ a while back.
Every Schecter I have played (numerous) has been rock solid and silky smooth.

bought myself a zoom g2.1u with my christmas money yesterday :-)
its awesome, i love it already, but if i have any spare cash i might
consider adding a looping pedal to my little setup...possibly a boss rc-2. more research required on that.
also, half planning on getting a really cheap, weird, "pawnshop" type guitar from ebay to satisfy my lust for guitars :-)
This is my signature. Fear it.

I bought myself the '51 on the right (already had the Epi)

I got my 14 & 10 year old boys these (Squier Bullet and Squier Mini Strat)...My Epi always seems to find its way into pictures.

And the greatest gift was all of us jamming together at my grandparents' house

Very nice pictures, JW. I have a 10 year old son who drums and plays bass, and an 8 year old son who plays guitar. I guess I am trying to "breed" my own band! :lol: And, their 4 year old sister wants to play keyboards!

I'm envious of you guys playing with your kids. My son and I both play guitar, but it's the rare occasion that he'll play with me. I guess for a boy at age 12, playing with your mom isn't near as cool as it would be to jam with your dad. :?

It is fun, Margaret. But don't be fooled - my oldest son doesn't think I am cool! 8) Although, more and more, I find him digging into my classic rock CDs! :wink:

No new guitar for me :cry: , but i did get a lot of smaller items that i really like :D

Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner
Fender Instrument Care Kit by Meguiars
Fender Ultimate Wipe Detailing Cloth by Meguiars
Fender Brass & Chrome Cleaner/Polish by Meguiars
Fender Applicator Pads by Meguiars 2-Pack

And with the money i got i ordered this stuff:
Fender Fretboard Conditioner by Meguiars
Black Scratch Pad Velvet Guitar Finish Protector
Black Perri's 2.5" Soft Leather Padded Deluxe Guitar Strap

I love the wishlist on MF, it makes it so simple for my family to pick out the right gifts for me. The Fender/Meguiars care products are the best i have ever used. They make my guitars look better than new, even my old, beat up electric strat clone.
Guitars: Electric: Jackson DX10D, J. Reynolds Fat Strat copy
Acoustic: New York and a Jasmine.
Amps: Austin 15 watt, Fender Deluxe 112, Fender Champion 600 5w, 0ld 1970's Sears 500g.
Effects: Digitech Whammy, Big Muff Pi USA, MXR, Washburn Distortion.

You guys got some real cool prezzies this year.

I got this book:

:shock:

I'm sure I'll grow into it. :lol:

Should keep me busy well into my old age.

I also treated myself to this:

At only £50 I couldn't resist trying it out. Haven't had chance to try it through a cab yet though only through headphones.

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.
