As christmas is coming up we start wondering about the perfect gift for our beloved. The latest piece of high tech gadget is normally at the top of many people’s list and yes, it is a good option but how long does it last? Not much actually. Very soon a new gadget will come to replace our expensive and precious present in the mind of the gifted one. We can always opt for the practical present and we can give him/her a new electric drill, a nice jumper or an annual subscription to the gym but yes, there’s not much passion or illusion in those presents.
A classic but often forgotten one is a guitar. A guitar is more than a present. A guitar is a present with a project attached for those who always wanted to learn how to play and never took the decision to do it or a present with a sentimental charge for those that wanted a new guitar for ages and did’n had the chance or the money to buy it.
A guitar for everyone
