a law school graduation present, a year early...


Trevor has needed a new electric guitar for a long time now. Back when he was doing Jazz Guitar Performance at the University of Utah his professors would practically beg him to get a new guitar. They kept on telling him that he was too good for the guitar he had, and he owed it to himself to get a better one. Trevor has had his reliable electric guitar since he was little, so to say he needed a new one was an understatement.

We decided that a new electric guitar was worthy of a Law School Graduation present, so we held off on getting him a new one. Well I don't know if senioritis kicked in, or what exactly, but over the last several months Trevor has been searching and shopping around for a new guitar. Then he found one online for a steal of a deal and he was in love. So we talked about it and thought that now was probably a better time to get it anyways. The third year is notoriously the easiest in Law School, and if we waited until he was graduating to get him the guitar he would be right in the thick of studying for the Bar. He also would most likely be starting a new job, and he would have a lot less time then he will over this next year to play around on his new toy.
 
So we got it. I have always wanted to surprise him with a gift I knew would mean a lot to him, but that is hard to do with how much money a guitar costs, that and the fact that I would have no clue what he would want in a guitar! haha So on the day it was supposed to arrive Trevor thought he would have to pick it up the next day from the post office because no one would be home to sign for it. So I thought this could be my chance to have a little surprise. I went into work a little late so I could stay and sign for it. Then I opened it up and left it sitting there with a card for him. You should have seen his face when he got home not expecting it to be there!

Trevor has been playing it non stop. I love coming home to him playing. I am sad he will be gone most of the summer and I won't get to hear it as often. This guy totally deserves this guitar. Such a hard worker, and talented to boot. Before he left I filmed one of his solos he has been practicing, just thought I would share it :) Here is a post with one of my favorites he plays!

  6. Wow!! Trevor is so talented! So fun that you were able to splurge on the present a year early. Sometimes a little reward along the way does wonders for your motivation and for finishing something strong. Hope you're adjusting ok to him being gone!

  9. Scott really needs a new guitar too. I would love to be able to surprise him with that, but I feel the same way you did. It's too expensive to not make the decision together, plus I wouldn't know what to get him! pretty much every guitar accessory I buy him is picked out by him in advance. Oh, well!
