I have hinted that I want a new winter hat (preferably a plain black stocking cap).

Difficult to answer. Any gift I want, I'll probably have to buy it myself.

It's as good an excuse as any. :)

I'd like people who don't want to celebrate Christmas to go and be miserable somewhere else, the rest of us like to have a feed and be merry. And it's not a religious festival in my house, it's just a few days when we can kick back and overindulge with a clear conscience.

If you don't like that, fine, just stop banging on about it plskthx :-)

I want one of my sisters to shut the fuck up when I am around. Last time I saw her I was so close to strangle that bitch. Also I need a bunch of harddisks. And a metart membership.

I'd like a flat tax and the tax discussion to move to "lowering taxes for the non-rich."

Ugh. Last time you and I talked, you mocked my personal beliefs while I was (at least initially) kind towards yours. Who should be strangled?

Interesting. I'm not sure if I want a full-blown hollow-body though. The 335/339 style can do creamy jazz sounds but they can also rock a bit too. I've fallen in love with the big, fat tone and the "bell-like" sustain (all 335 reviews have to mention that - it's a legal requirement). They're very sensitive to pick attack and that makes them very musical and expressive - see any BB King solo on his Lucille.

Realistically, I expect I'll end up buying an Epiphone - don't laugh they can actually be quite good. I also like the idea of a cheaper instrument to experiment with electronics and winding new pickups. Lipsticks on a 335...? Certainly some coil taps.

If you're going to go with an offshore built guitar, you can get a better guitar for less it just won't say Epiphone on it. Something like a Cort would blow it away.

Xmas came early for me. Managed to swap for another guitar which I'd never bonded with. I got it for the sound but damn don't the 335 look good?
