my baby

As a vocalist, i used to always envy the other players in the bands i've sung in.
They all had instruments that they could carry, play, polish, and adore.
I had nothing, because back then i just sang.

But about 10 years ago, SHE came into my life
-- a beautiful vintage Les Paul TV Special. I'm sure that she'd been held and stroked by dozens of skilled and sexy guitarists before me, and maybe they did to her things that i would never be skilled enough to do...
But somehow she ended up here with me.
I believe we are happy together, and i'm not letting her go.

As you can see in the photo, some past owner decided to carve and burn his or her initials - "MB"- on the back of her body... ouch.
I'm hoping it wasn't Michael Bolton. (does he even play guitar?)
And it probably wasn't Michelle Branch, either. (not yet old enough at the time).

Anyhow --
Lovers may come and go, but i know she will always be my special love.

So -- what about you?
Musician or not, tell me about YOUR special "instrument."
