My guitar- a Washburn, purchased for me by my Sherpa guide in Ottawa circa 1992. Not too expensive, we affectionately refer to it as a nice 'beater' guitar; always keeps its tune and I don't have to worry about giving it a few dings at a cabin party.
In fact, it had a full-blown hole in it at one point- a souvenir of our trip to Florida in 2009 to visit Dad and Ros- but it is hardly visible thanks to a handy young fella at Long and McQuade. A character guitar.
My banjo- also technically not 'my' banjo. It was my Dad's and he gave it to my Sherpa guide several years ago. And, technically, I don't 'play' it. At least not yet! But I have been banjo-curious for awhile, and have begun the process of learning; doesn't sound quite like music yet!
Hmmmmm. As I am writing this I am realizing that my Sherpa guide is also my music store; he can help carry camera gear on hikes AND is a source of musical instruments. Useful, that one! I wonder what will be in the shed the next time I am waiting for the Keg to do its thing? I hear Long and McQuade has a sale on bagpipes...ha.
