My Guitar Collection

As you know, hobi aku adalah main gitar. So di sini aku just nak share my guitar collections and their background.

1. Maxstone Red Stratocaster (nickname : Merah)

- My very first electric guitar
- nickname taken from Malay word, 'Merah' means red. Dont know what name need to give at that time.
- Bought in 2006 for RM550 (package include Amp)
- Beli gitar dengan hasil bekerja sambilan after SPM sebagai tukang cuci pinggan di sebuah kedai Bistro di Raub. Hasil kumpul gaji selama 4 bulan, berhenti kerja dan terus beli gitar.

2. Santa Cruz Alpine White Les Paul (nickname : Shiro)

- Bought in 2009 during my Internship, for RM600 (around that)
- nickname taken from a Japanese word, 'Shiro', thats mean 'White'.
- inspired by Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance in early days.
-  Al-kisah, i was looking white les paul guitar that time, no matter what brand. Tiba-tiba dapat message from my friend, The Rock ( Syafiq), that time he also do internship at JB, said that he managed to find a white les paul. Then he send picture, details etc. Later i transfer him the cash, and the problem now how he want to send me the guitar all the way from JB to KL. Aku pun teringat my hometown buddies, Emim, studied at UTM Skudai, so aku bagitau dia suh ambik gitar kat The Rock, then bawak balik gitar tu naik bas bila dia pulang ke rumah family dia di KL. Later then, aku pegi rumah dia dari Setiawangsa ke TBS by train.

- bought in 2015 at The Guitar Store Damansara, for RM2199
- a signature guitar by Matthew Bellamy (MUSE).
- nickname taken from the last 3 characters of word Bellamy, thats why 'Amy'
- actually, dari mula aku blaja main gitar in 2003, sampai la sekarang 2015, i always wanted this guitar shape but hardly get it because, Matt's guitar only build special for him only. Kalau jual pun, you need to order it in Manson Guitarworks located in UK, for almost £3000 .!!! kalau convert duit Malaysia, boleh dapat kereta kelisa sebijik tau.! but since aku baca news late 2014, Manson guitar join venture with Cort (korea brand) build a affortable guitar for MUSE's fans. surpisingly, aku ingat paling koman harga RM3k ke atas. nasib RM2k. and now, i love this guitar so much.!
