My mother gave this to me in 2007, as she said she never plays it and needs the space! I have very little information on this guitar, other than that it is genuinely Spanish, probably dates from the 1970s, really needs restringing…

…and has a proud place in my musical history, as on the 4th March 1987 I sat down with a Mick Abrahams tutor record and this instrument, and learned my very first guitar chords.

I’m definitely going to record something with this one day.

(Update (March 2008)): Since I wrote the above notes, I have used this guitar on two recordings: backing tracks for my wife’s musical activity sessions for children ("Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "I Can Sing A Rainbow"). It records nicely, though I don’t think I’ve got the EQ quite right yet when mixing.

My electric guitar, a Godin SD. Nice guitar, but the reason it’s posted is because I believe that the pick between the strings may count as a "Thoughtless Act."

this is my 1999 Raimundo. it was born in Valencia, Spain. my dad got me this guitar when i started the music program at portland state university, which means i’ve had this guitar for six years. this was the last gift my dad (by himself) bought me before he got sick. this is also the one guitar i would never sell (like i sold my flamenco guitar) and plan to hand down to whichever kid or grandkid shows an interest in the classical guitar.
it has a cedar top and a really nice mellow tone. also, it smells really good. this one i got at portland music co.

Made it just in time :)

This is a photo of my friend playing the guitar. It was from a sort of unofficial photo shoot, but it was the only good picture and it barely involves him at all.
