There are days, I think of giving up. Thank you @retnavijayan for the gift.

My first electric guitar
My first electric guitar

I have a guitar, which @retnavijayan bought for me 16 years ago, I still have it in 1 piece, great condition and occasionally we will sit at the car porch to strumming, sing some songs.

That guitar was my Christmas gift.

When I was asked if I would like another guitar for my birthday present, I thought about it for a while.

Then I thought, why not.

So we started looking around for the guitars that I want to have.

Since I already have an acoustic guitar, why not let’s have an electric guitar this time.

Although after I tested a Taylor, I am thinking, maybe the next guitar.

Went a few places to check out the guitars, however the choice always came back to the same place – Bentley.

Anyway, which we bought the guitar from the place.

I am still getting use to the electric guitar settings, tuning, sound effects, oh my, so many things to learn from just an electric guitar.

After trying the various Fender, I chose Fender Jaguar, Kurt Cobain signature model.

Taken from Fender:-

The Kurt Cobain Jaguar® is meticulously modeled on the battered and highly unusual 1965 Jaguar that Cobain wielded during the heady early-’90s era when Nirvana ruled rock and led a musically stunning and culturally subversive movement. Fender craftsmen have reproduced Cobain’s battle-hardened Jaguar down to the last unusual detail, including its worn finish, dual humbucking pickups and unique electronics and controls (which were already in place when Kurt acquired the guitar in summer 1991).

Unique features include an alder body with Road Worn aged finish and hardware treatment, bound fretboard with pearloid dot markers, Stratocaster headstock shape with 1950s-style “spaghetti” logo, DiMarzio® humbucking DP103 PAF 36th Anniversary neck pickup and DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup, triple knurled “chrome-dome” knob configuration (volume-volume-tone),three-position toggle switch, black chrome Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and Gotoh® sealed tuners.

So the outlook of the guitar looks old, but it is not.

Thus far, I think I am playing the guitar like an acoustic, which I need to constantly remind myself it is not.

It is something which I would study and practice most evening.

Stay tuned for more updates.
