Gave up justifying guitars & amps to myself last year...once they are used to record & song goes on CD..it's part of the keepers. I thoroughly enjoy setting them all up. each one has provided a fun quest of learning. All of em are dif sounding & for a specif sound. Converted from 25 years of bass 5 years ago to guitar..used to be simple P & Jazz & Ampeg SVT. Now it's pretty crazy. 3 years down now since wife(singer) was hurt bad & traumatic brain injury. So the gear has been my friend while i take care of her.
