Today class, we will be discussing perception. Kinda like when you see a tattoo- laden biker type holding back a pit-bull while raffling off tickets for his little girls high school fundraising event. At first glance, he looks to be threatening and somewhat not like the others. "Maybe even a deviant" you think, certainly a social outcast if nothing else. Our subliminal mind is below the threshold of consciousness, but surely, the subliminal mind controls us. The subliminal is the "what" that not only dictates to you your profession, your social status but also the woman you kiss everyday as you take that lunch pail to your job in that subliminally made car you conjured up. Just maybe we're in need of perceptual self hypnosis. That's fancy scientific rhetoric for "checking yourselves." Basically meaning that people develop their attitudes by similar experiences one may have had. But, oh why do I bring the subliminal into my description, you ask? Because if the perception of a 12- string guitar isn't cool in your mind, that is because of a misconception you may have previously had. Maybe you think Danny Bonaducci played one on the Partridge Family? Albeit not a handsome man and couldn't fight, he still was known worldwide at one time. Maybe that's it? Perhaps your hating on him. Yes, that's it. You crushed on Susan Dey and he (Danny boy, that is) was a bit too close to your beloved. Now I see it clearly- it's a territorial thing with you. Friends, let go and feel the flow. This guitar, in capable hands can be magic. This Coronado XII is of course all original (with the exception of a new nut) and as sexy as Susan in a blue miniskirt while playing her organ. I know, you wanna know if this guitar is clean? Is it in collector quality condition? The quality is of a finely made Swiss watch and as clean as a latrine in a military barracks. As for perceptions and misconceptions? People, we now live in a more forgiving society, as you know. Let the hate for Danny go. After all, Donny Osmond kicked his ass- just think about getting your ass handed to you by a guy singing "Puppy Love." Isn't that payback enough? Besides, the real villain wasn't Danny Boy, it was David Cassidy. David was the pretty boy as you know and he didn't need the aid of Perceptual self hypnosis. You know why? The power of supreme confidence. I understand girls really dig it... Now can you dig it?
