New Fiddlestick II

August 28th, 2008 | Category: General

You say it’s your birthday?  Na na na na! It’s my birthday too!

I arrived home yesterday to this:

The Martin Mini LXM.  It’s the second Martin I’ve owned in my life.  It’s also my second brand new guitar.  It was a gift from my beautiful wife, Heather!  She rocks!

This thing has such enormous sound for a little guitar and will be awesome for traveling.  I plan to bring it to Hawaii and play it on the beach this fall.
