Never Enough Guitars

Posted by jon on September 27, 2010 in not so deep thoughts |

One of my passions, as many of you know, is playing guitar. I’ve been playing now for about 15 years. For most of that time I’ve been leading worship. First in my youth group during high school, then at Mercer, then on the road throughout much of the southeast, and now at Lawrence Drive. I would never consider myself a great guitar player. I don’t intend to be falsely modest but I am simply a good enough rhythm player, but I really love to play.

I have several guitars that I have collected over the years, and most of them are fairly modest pieces that are primarily just functional, but I do have one crown jewel. I have a Taylor 310 that is my baby. I’m not saying I love it more…I’m just saying I had it before I had a wife or child so take what you will. My Taylor is a beautiful guitar that sounds better today than when I bought it (interesting fact, acoustic guitars develop a fuller richer tone as they age due to the way the wood ages).

Right now I am saving for another Taylor guitar. I’ve been saving for about 10 months. Every gift giving event I’ve simply asked for a few bucks for the guitar fund. I’ve stuck away my spare change and almost all my spending money.  And now I’m starting to get excited because I’m very close to being able to afford my new guitar. At last count I am a little less than $500 shy of my goal. I have spoken to the owner of my favorite guitar shop and once I decide which guitar I want he will put the guitar away for me till I have the final funds (an unofficial layaway if you will).There are two guitars I am looking at, a Taylor 614 and a 714. Both guitar are stunning and sound amazing.

If you haven’t noticed I am very excited about this guitar. I understand this will likely be the last time I will spend this kind of money on a guitar until…well ever. So I am very appreciative to my wife who has supported my desire to save for this guitar. She may not understand why we have to spend this much on a guitar but she wants it for me and that just one of the reasons she’s awesome!
