Gift card burning a hole in my pocket.

Post by The Scum » Thu Jan 02, 2020 1:54 pm

So the holidays netted me a $50 Guitar Center gift card...but I'm at a loss as to how to spend it.

My basic supplies needs are all pretty well covered, and I wouldn't worry about adding a few bucks myself if it got me something neat.

Any great ideas?

A Guitar Center guitar lesson might be amusing for an hour.

I'd look through their used shit. Or buy a bass drum head.

I would keep my eye out for a cool Daily Pick.
https://www.guitarcenter.com/Daily-Pick.gc

Today they have 2 Fender 18.6' instrument cables for $29.99. That's pretty nice if you need some cables or you could hang tight for a pedal or microphone to come up, which they often do.

Part of that new year’s weight loss plan. I recommend the lettuce wraps for maximum effect. :shock:

As much as I could use some black pepper beef (and my local PF Chang's is right next to 2nd & Charles), I think I'll keep my eyes on the daily pick. I watch the MF daily deal when I remember, but hadn't seen it's GC cousin.

And VVV is probably right - I think I want a Small Stone...
