    There were several opportunities to buy incredible stuff in my life. Sometimes I managed to drum up the money in time. Sometimes the item was sold before ihad the money together. But I always tried to find a reasonable way to fund it.
    Sometimes I had to sell my motorbike or something else. In the end I had some investment-grade instruments and amps that I considered to be my playable-savings-account.

    I don't know who the seller is, but might it be worth reaching out to explain the situation and see if maybe some arrangement can be made? I've done plenty of sales on odd terms, usually happy to make the sale and willing to wait a bit for full payment. Of course, I'm not a store. But Masterbuilt guitars are expensive and probably not flying out the door. There might be a kind/game soul willing to work with you.

    It’s only a guitar, never buy something if your not fully financially secure.

    As long as the family is fed, the bills are paid, and the wolf's not at the door, then fine. Priorities!

    I'd like to tell ya i have never went into debt for a guitar,but i have,twice,first was for my 1965/66 6120 when i was 17,then again for my 1957 6120,i was just shy of my 30th when i bought that.

    Never again though,i'm debt free and plan to keep it that way.

    One way or the other I think this guitar is going to change my life. Whether I get it or not it has really opened my eyes.
    Been a long time since I’ve been obsessed to this level.
    It feels like the culmination of years of gear lust condensed into one single object.
    This one’s become a spiritual struggle for me. It’s the guitar that I’d like to spend the rest of my days with but I just don’t think it’s going to happen.
    When you’re going cold turkey you lie awake sweating and moaning and asking yourself lots of questions.
    Amazing how much of our identity gets wrapped up in these objects isn’t it?

    Here are your questions, Blue: 1) Whose are you? 2) Does any guitar change that?
