My local music store Music Centre Canada has had this gold top Swede guitar on the wall for a long, long time. I played it in the store a few times, and every time, I was amazed at the sheer quality of this guitar. It's priced right too, and I've been sure next time I stop by, someone will have bought it. Nope, didn't happen. The store sold several white Swedes, so perhaps the gold top colour doesn't appeal to everyone. I think it's classy!
So, long story short - I bought it. I stopped by the store to pick up a book. I tried the Swede yet one more time, and felt like it spoke to me: get me, we'll have fun together!, or something like that. I do know guitars don't usually speak to people, but I promise - it got into my head somehow!
This weekend, I've been busy getting set up in my new studio (more on that soon), and of course, playing my new baby! I posted a video demo today of this guitar, so here it is for your viewing pleasure. Let me know what you think.
