Wasn’t me. Yes I’m from Harrison. Yes I ogle the guitars there on a regular basis when my boy is at his lessons. Yes I had one particular black one in mind for my birthday – that very day. But there just isn’t much point – I can’t play yet. Honest.

(PS: glad they got him. Good job.)

Sounds like this clown must’ve hit Pirana music, so I’m glad they got him.

I’ve shopped at Pirana a few times, and it’s a great place. Good products at good prices and the staff treat you with respect, even if you can’t play like Jimi Hendrix, unlike a couple of other music stores around town which are inhabited by people who think they are the world’s coolest human beings.
