Anyone had that portable guitar thing pop up on their facebook feeds?

I was wondering if it was real. All of the popup facebook stuff seems to be fake.

My last few weeks

So after buying my A&L Wild Cherry I fell in love with Godin guitars. My quest was to go better, for as little $$ as possible by trading up

I picked up a Yamaha FG700S, solid top, didn't like, so sold it on to a waiting buyer for 60% markup, then the hunt was on for a best I can get acoustic I was looking high, Simon &a Patric, Takemene or Seagull S6

Well today I got my wish, after many eve scouring the free adds I found MY holy grail!!

It's a 2007 Simon & Patrick Woodland series Cedar with the electric built in pick up and tuner (the tuner is a bonus I didn't know about that till I got it home) retail with tax is in the 650$ range. The guitar is in 9/10 condition. Plus I got this of a Long and Mcqade guitar instructor who has set it up perfect but just dosnt use it enough. My total cash outlay, 140$ the rest was my trade up.

Big smile now, just need to keep practising now to play it like it the way it deserves

I didn't stop, I sold my learner guitar on Kijiji and used the $$ to buy me a KORG AX1500G effects bank, awesome piece of kit. !!

Very nice.

I have a Boss ME 80. I use it to try out certain effects and, if I like them, I usually go a purchase a single pedal to add to my pedal board as I find that it is far too much of a pain in the arse to have to save the settings to the board.

Great idea

I like the board tho, it's easy to use and loads of fun

I supose I could have just gone and purchased all my recent stuffs from L&M but for me I love the challenge of bartering selling and searching

Easy but great song, drop half step tuning and verse is 2 minor power chords 7 and 5 fret, then G power chord 3rd fret and move it down to 5th fret



Chorus is open E - G - D - A
