    I played a Blues Showcase today at a local libary with a new guitar - a '98 Gibson ES335 Vintage that I bought from the estate of a fellow blues musician (Steve Hudson) who passed away last year. The cool thing was in accordance with his wishes, the proceeds from my purchase as well as others made for a $6,000 donation to the Library as part of this event!

    I was playing through a Swart ASTR and a Xotic BB preamp and was kind shocked when wife said that the guitar sounded good and and her own words had "nice tone".....

    I gotta keeper here....

    Did you check to see if she was wearing any new rings?

    Just a joke.

    Defiantly keep her.

    My wife told me she really liked my Tele into my DRRI the last time she heard me play at church. I was actually shocked because usually when I ask her,she goes, "OK, I guess." But I usually play through a Cube 30 ;)

    My wife's got a great ear - owns her own tele and taylor acoustic. She will always tell me when it sounds good or bad. She usually right, she can tell whenever the audio settings in car or on the TV are off, again she's usually right.

    The best is when I go casually to the store to check out gear with no intention of buying and I bring her with me. If there's a guitar or amp I'm playing that sounds particularly good she will say "you should buy that."

    She still gets on my case for not buying a Custom Shop Broadcaster when on vacation in LA one year.

    They say that to stop GAS!

    Sounds like a nice fundraiser. Libraries could use it in this climate......
