  1. me, i got a planet waves cable and a boss TU-2 tuner. i'm quite happy with both of them, and especially surprised at how the TU-2 doesn't lay a finger on my precious, precious tone. even in non-bypass mode.

    oh, and i got some nifty hearos earplugs, too.

    The real gift I had for X-mas is a Samsung notebook PC.

    Not really music-related, but...

    My wonderful girlfriend went all out this year. I got (not counting not-musical stuff):
    a couple of Vic Wooten cds
    the new Sleater-Kinney cd
    an old Jimmy Eat World cd
    a Hercules tri-guitar stand
    a Gary Willis Fingerboard Harmony book


    ...and a new Avatar 4x10 :D Unfortunately, my fretting pinky is still injured, so I can only play in short bursts, but it's great so far. Way up on the cool list as well are Dvds of C.H.U.D., Evil Dead 2, and UHF.

    Alas, I did not get a dremel. :( :D
