I bought a guitar (a mid-sixties gibson b-25, for those who are hip to this sort of thing) last week! I'm rather enjoying it.
I also enjoyed tracking its shipment across the country on ups.com, though I was a bit unnerved by the thoroughness of this truly incredible service:

And it goes on like this!
Remarkable candor, I must say.
