Greg McCarroll and his (extraordinarily) lovely wife have, for the time
being, sufficiently brainwashed me as to convince me to for some
indeterminate amount of time, muck-in this kooky kerfuffle.
And lastly, in the tradition of me old beloved ny.pm, but not leastly
(but yeastly), BEER. The international language of love... second to
Perl of course.
If you haven't guessed, i'm from the states.

Hey, maybe it's one of those cheapo 'made in China' jobs. Of course,
if it paid for a Martin or a Lowden or something else equally lovely,
then well done Mr Adler.
Ah, I wish...
The truth is somewhere in between. I got a Burns Marquee. The reason I
was able to do so is that, although it's a perfectly good guitar, they
weren't selling. When the price dropped by 75% (and I got informed
opinions telling me it was not just a piece of junk), I couldn't resist.
In fact, if one takes into account how much I saved, it actually
*increases* the amount I got paid. :-)
