My New Guitar!

Today I purchased a brand new DiPinto Mach IV guitar!! At this point there are probably two questions going through your head (depending upon how well you know me and how much you know about guitars). The first is - do I even know how to play the guitar? And the second is - What the heck is a DiPinto guitar?

Oddly enough, the answer to the first question is - not really. I used to play the guitar at camp when I was younger but I haven't played one since then, so I know the basic chords but that's about it. Anyway, recently I decided that instead of spending so much time playing the rock band game guitar (which I'm freakin awesome at) I thought maybe I should spend that time learning to play a real guitar...a skill that might appeal to demographics other than nerdy teenage boys.

My original plan was to get some cheap, used guitar off craigslist that I could mess around with, but as I was searching online I stumbed onto DiPinto guitars website and they had some of the coolest, unique looking guitars I had seen. So to answer the second question above, here's the text from the 'About Us' page over on dipintoguitars.com:

DiPinto Guitars is a small family owned company, operating out of Philadelphia, PA. Founded in 1995 as a repair shop, the store slowly evolved into a showroom specializing in oddball vintage guitars and Chris DiPinto's own guitar creations. Over the years, DiPinto has grown to include a full scale guitar manufacturing operation while still operating the original retail outlet.
Now it wasn't about getting a cheap guitar to mess around with anymore, I wanted one of these guitars! So I went down to their retail outlet on Girard street and tried a bunch of them out and eventually purchased their Mach IV model in a sparkly gold color.

And just to make it even cooler, Conan O'Brien is the proud owner of DiPinto Galaxie 4 guitar. So if you want to get a really awesome and unique-looking guitar or bass for surprisingly cheap, check out dipintoguitars.com, and assuming I actually learn how to play it maybe we can jam together.
