    You can't go wrong with a squier. I have a squier fat strat and it plays great and has nice sustain and good tone. The only thing is the pickups sound a little brittle and could definitely use an upgrade. My favorite right now is my Cort LP copy. It was 249 dollars and the tone and the sustain are excellent. The neck bucker is warm and crunchy and the bridge bucker is searing an full of snarl.

    They're really nice just a bit too expensive for me, i played that one along with countless others in that category bc I wanted a smaller scale guitar for portability, my new one is the Art & Lutherie Ami handmade in Canada (they're part of the Godin company who also make seagull, simon & patrick ect) for the price and workmanship it's hard to beat, great tone and plays pretty big for a parlor.

    I suggest checking one out if you have a dealer near you.

    I have never had the opportunity to play this exact model, but I'd be willing to bet it plays really nicely like every other Taylor I have played. However for my personal taste I'm not a huge fan of Taylor because they sound a little bright for my taste. Then again I like a darker sound, for instance the strings on my acoustic are 5 years old and I hope I don't break one anytime soon. They considerably darken what happens to be an extremely bright sounding guitar.

    I will also second WHR's suggestion of trying a Seagull out. I love the sound they make.

    well leo, i prefer my fish tacos shaved rather than bearded. soft shell? yeah, we'll go with that.

    and i dont have a general preference but if i had to choose between bath or shower i would choose shower. even though water continually runs up your nose and you end up spluttering everywhere...

    Taylor's are a high quality brand. If money was no object I'd get a Martin D-28, they truly are the best of the best but then again I suck playing acoustically as there's no distortion or reverb to disguise my atrocious technique.

    I love that my sister and I are already talking about Thanksgiving and all the delicious foods we're going to have. Haha.
    She lives out of town and it's SO beautiful up there. Last year we went to the pumpkin patch with my nephew and it was a blast. Can't wait.

    (ps: Thanksgiving is in October in Canada, we're not totally crazy)

    A lovely parcel from my Russian friend (some of contents in photo). I didn't quite believe it when they said they were sending me jam. Not every day you get Russian jam in the post, lol!

    Feeling fantastic after the acupuncture last week and the bizarre belly button and salt moxibustion (it might have made me giggle, but it seems to have had a wonderful effect!)

    Also...All set to finalise my flight, hotel and train bookings for this year's big adventure - haven't had this much leave from work all at once in 6 years!:)
