As the title indicates, I'm unsure what to ask for christmas, a Portuguese Guitar (12 string lute like instrument used in Fado) or the latest ipod (120gb).

the lute-thing is pretty cool, but i dont see too much practicality in it. Id go with the Ipod.

Do you already have an ipod? Does it still work? Does it have enough capacity?
If yes, the lute thing. Because honestly, how many people have 120GB of music, and listen to more than 20% of it?

I found one of those things underneath my bed the other day. I had to get my mum to put a glass over it and take it outside.

Why are you asking other people what you should get?

It's about what you want...I'd get the guitar but it's up to you really.

Im portuguese, fado music is very toutching and the guitar is very amazing, id say portuguese guitar, always good to have skills,you can get another mp3 player much cheaper than an ipod, ipod is somewhat just a piece of globalization, everyone just have to have one, i say f*ck it, but thats really up to you

Thanks for all the opinions; yes I do play fado, I'm part of a Tuna (folkloric band) though I play the double bass with them. Seen as I am a guitarrist, the previous bassist wants to come back and there's no one on the portuguese guitar, I though I'd take it up.

When you study law and play music there is little time to earn money, and the money I do earn and/or save up is to shop for other people, not myself.
