Well, my new electric guitar and amp came by UPS today. I was pretty happy to come home from work earlier this afternoon seeing two big UPS boxes sitting there waiting for me. You betcha, I opened ’em right up asap.
The guitar that I got was an Ibanez Artcore Hollow Body Electric and she looks beautiful. The amp that I got is a Fender Frontman 212R. I also got an Ibanez chromatic tuner pedal and the Boss Super Overdrive stomp box. Got an Ibanez guitar case which fits my new guitar perfectly. Haven’t plugged it in and played through the amp yet. Need to buy some guitar cables so I can hook up my guitar and all those pedals into it.
I was very surprised on how fast this order is. AMS is a great company. I just ordered these yesterday and here they are now. I also bought a few other accessories as well.
The main reason why I want to go electric is not just to form a band and hopefully to play live again, I want to expand my guitar horizons. Get better at it and improve. Especially improve my lead guitar soloing so I can do some improvised jams. I’ve read the reviews on the Fender amp and they say it’s a very loud amp, loud enough to play it in a band and to play live with. It has two speakers and a footswitch.
The acoustic thing became kind of boring to me, I want to do something different this time. Rock it up some more and play guitar for the reason I picked it up in the first place. I may enjoy a lot of hobbies and different activities, but guitar playing and music is my no. 1. I’ll post pics of my new guitar and amp soon.
