I have a boyfriend that plays in a band and all, but I just don't know what to give him for christmas. I thought about something for his guitar, (or maybe even another instrument).

suggestions? what would you want?

Your mum.


On a serious note, some effect pedals, new guitars, box of picks etc.

Erh, not more than 350$, but around that price is fine.

A Paul Reed Smith Custom 24.

Holy shit, how happy I'd be with such a gift.

It ranges between $2500 and $4000, though.

I could definitely try that one out

Well, a new guitar would be a little bit to expensive yeah. haha. he already has one for over 2.200$ so a new one he needs to get himself.

Yeah, a $2.200 guitar isn't something you change overnight so don't even bother anyway.

Those silver picks mentioned above are a cool and cute idea, actually. You should just do that.

I think that an effects pedal might be a good idea. What kind of music does he play? What gear does he have?

Some good company and some alcohol would be nice.


I second this... but if that's not doable then a Cornford Hellcat would do nicely... no? All right then, a PS3 slim.

I thought about that, he plays a sort of idk, inspired by Rise against at least.
and I don't really know what gear he as, I just know he has one pedal, but he never uses it =/

PS3 is unfortunately 100$ more than I can afford. But I thought about it. Might get it for his birthday though, its just some months after christmas.

It's hard to suggest really, I would love to get some crazy delay pedal, or ring modulator, but i like wierd noises.

Ohhhhh, I get it now.

Don't get him anything guitar related, give him yourself wrapped in a ribbon covering all the bits that 'need' covering.

That would actually be the best present ever. I even have the shoes that could go with it. Damnit.

I am, unfortunately, not rich enough for a new guitar. I'll start saving for another christmas.

Well, I already bought myself a ukulele, a banjo and a bass guitar this year...

I'll probably bug my friends to buy a 7-stringed guitar for me, while promising them a Wii or some other stupid shit :/
#34
Yeah a pedal would be nice. But what would be nicer is pedal+mistletoe+third base+(more if you want to)
Jackson RR5 ivory w/ EMG 81/85
Jackson DX6 w/ SD Distortion & Dimarzio Super Distortion
Fender Starcaster Sunburst

Boss CE-5

ISP Decimator
Boss DD-6

Whatever you get him, he's probs not going to like it. It's why I don't ask people to get me anything guitar-related, whether it be a strap (I'm happy with my strap, if I wanted a new one, I'd get it) or an effects pedal ("Oh thanks, I've always wanted a behringer pedal...").

Never mind the guitar. Just write "3 holes, no waiting" on a bit of card, and let him get on with it.

Im hoping for a looper pedal, i have wanted one since like forever.

A harmonica! Easily adds to your intrumental repetoire and is impossible to sound bad on.
