    November 1st will be our 28th anniversary. The woman has been a saint to put up me and all my baggage
    and shit for that long....trust me on that one. I'd probably be dead by now if she hadn't taken pity on me
    and married me even tho it was so obvious to everyone that she was marrying down, and I was marrying up.

    Anyway, I digress....this morning I was looking at guitars, as I am wont to do on occasion, and I saw another
    guitar that i really liked and just casually said...."Baby, I want this guitar"! To my surprise and delight,
    without skipping a beat she said "Well, get it and that can be my anniversary present for you"...and she
    wasn't shitting me. Without further ado, here is the guitar I decided on.

    Epiphone ES-339 Semi-Hollow Body Natural

    Fantastic! Cool guitar and an even better wife!

    Congrats on 28 years. That is a commitment right there.

    In March it will be 25 for me and my wife. We have our issues, but she is the only one I want to grow old with!

    Congrats on marrying up and the guitar. The fact you married on the first is a sign you married a saint.

    I out kicked my coverage too. Congratulations on the 28th and I wish you guys many more. BTW I think the 30th is suppose to be guitar amplifier year if I am not mistaken. At least that is what I told my wife. Or it could be pearls but no guy wants pearls. Be prepared to buy that woman some pearls in two years.

    That is a beautiful guitar, but I hear they don’t have they best tone unless you pair them with at least half a dozen new dirt pedals! Don’t worry, she will understand.

    I have had that same guitar, also in natural, since 2014. A really nice guitar and one of my favorites. The natural finish just looks classy. Congrats! Only mods I have done to mine are a Gotoh bridge and a Graphtech nut (not that it really needed either).

    They sound best with NO dirt pedals. Great clean sounds!

    To you and me, sure, but I think PS needs an excuse to buy more pedals.

    I have a Epi ES-339 P-90 PRO in cherry already and it's one of my favorite non-Fender guitars. But
    I'm been wanting one with humbuckers in it. And the natural has been a favorite since the concert on
    the roof. I just love the size of the ES-339. Halfway between an LP and an 335, it's the perfect
    size. And at 7 lbs.....what's not to love.

    Thanks for all the kind words.....

    Congrats man that's a great guitar and even greater wife.
    My wife had a little different outlook she hated my guitars and kicked me out for gigging every weekend.
