    I just show her many of the posts here and Alt/Tab to another window with the retail prices of those instruments and she is happy my addiction is limited to Electros.

    Nice. I guess it helps with GAS when both are musicians. Wishing you both the best!

    Congratulations!

    Wife used to get upset over my guitars but I’ve sold enough that she trusts that I will in a pinch.

    Luckily I’ve made at least a little profit on every guitar that I’ve sold.

    My one claim to any sort of sense...I may not have success with anything financial on God’s green earth, but I know when to buy a guitar.

    My awful attempts to justify"

    The American ones are cheaper(she busted me on that one on a gear site)
    Going to sell 1 now to make up for it
    Got a trade i am working on
    This is a very rare one
    We going to the studio next week & i don;t have the tone for you to sing to yet(winner every time lol)

    when all else fails...honey..wanna go shopping today ? Seems to nullify a few guitar sins all in 1 gracious act

    I think the best argument point is to point out when your wife likes to buy certain things for herself (perhaps purses, jewelry, etc.). :p

    I find that my missus judges guitars in the same way she judges cars, by colour. So long as it's the same colour, it's the same guitar. Orange for example...

    I have a 2420T in gold so was able to bring in a Les Paul Gold Top type without any questions being asked. The response anyway would be, 'This? New? But, my love, you know I have a gold one.'
