Ever Reach Out Making A Wish....

For something you wish you could have, but know it's not possible anytime in the near future.
Oh and I mean a big something like maybe a Corvette or to move somewhere you'd like to live. lol
Find a sweet looking and ever sweeter sounding guitar at one of my visits to the Guitar Center store. Has a very warm tone to it with a gold finish on the top and a brown woodgrain finish for the sides and back.
It's the Gibson Slash Les Paul Goldtop. Runs just a little over $6000.00. Small pocket change, huh?? NOT!! ;-)
But for those that could never come close to that, Epiphone, which is a Gibson company also makes the Slash Les Paul Goldtop for $1500.00. Both guitars look and sound the same. But that's where the wish comes in because I can't even do that any time soon. But I thought when I seen it again last night in one of my bookmarks, it would make a great 50th birthday present for me in two days (7th). HaHaaHa!
Maybe I should just look back and dig out a post I made here a while back of a Gibson guitar cake and beg Wanda for it. lol ;-) Cake always pleases me just fine! :-))

And now I never thought I'd ever say this in a million years, But I can't wait until tonight when American Idol comes on. I've only ever seen maybe five miutes of the show and that was all I could take. Sorry to all you American Idol fans, I just don't fancy those kinds of shows. But tonight I'll have to try to get through it because Slash is suppose to be the show.He's teaching or something, I really have no idea because I've never watched it. But I'm hoping to get to see him play guitar even just a little bit. There's some awesome guitarist in the world and many I truly enjoy hearing, but to me, his sounds are the very best and I can't get enough of hearing him play.
