Here’s another personal story to bore you with.
I don’t play guitar. I don’t own a guitar. I do own several instruments. Here’s my story of me buying first keiongaku instrument.
Summer of 1992, in Saitama prefecture… I was determined that I wanted a bass guitar. I really don’t remember what triggered me into that mind set. It was not the same as Mio’s reason (see the episode for the details). I think I was always fascinated with the low-down bottom sound. The buying experience itself was pretty similar to Yui’s. I had a set budget, I really had no clue on selection criteria, I was overwhelmed with selection… But I did go home with an ax in my hand. Ibanez SR900LE. It was a scratch and dent item, so the price was marked down, but we did bargain a bit more. 17 years later, I still have it, and I still play it.
I do hope that Yui will love her new ax, and keep playing it for years to come.
