That’s a good strategy.
Not yet, I should be but I'm not and I am 68, never going to perform again and only play about 5 hours a week. I tell myself just a cheapy here and there but I just saw a wicket "2011 Fender Custom Shop Custom Classic. Has less than 1/2 hour playing time. Includes all original case candy unopened, COA, plastic still on pickguard. Color is an amazing Candy Apple Green" and I believe I've fallen in love... only $2375 or I could use that money for my Insulin
Yeah i've got to many too. My favorite is a Norman B20 and the wood is starting to wear like Willie's I like it so much I just bought another Norman but it's not the same
I have been doing that for some years. Sell all the junk, all "not played for half a year or more", parts etc... but keep the money "out of circuit" in my B account and then get a 6120 testing several in year or so and get a keeper. You may realise that the one you like can be a preFender 1990 instead a signature or whatever
I started playing as a way of living a couple of years ago and realised I was using two guitars for the 98% and the rest were case queens... off with their heads!
Now I am happier (and use it more) with a 6120 I know is better (to me) than many others than having five cheaper (but not too bad) guitars hanging around unplayed.
That is perfect. I know people that have so many guitars that they are ashamed to say how many.
My “rule” is that every guitar I have, with the exception of specialty instruments like a Bass VI, should be capable of carrying a gig, without a guitar swap. An assortment of Pro Series Gretsch do the trick quite well. I have two Teles, as well and they can earn their keep on any gig.
In the past, I’ve seen a lot of people join the forum, very excited by whatever guitar they purchased, but then ratchet their way up to ever better instruments, in a relatively short period of time. It occurs to me that it would be less expensive to buy what the person really wants, in the first place.
Absolutely... but it took me 35 years to learn it.
Somewhat the same here.
This is my last one for the foreseeable. I do like the look of Strandberg’s Jazz Salen but I’ve got plenty of instruments. Way more than a fella needs who has all but given up on playing in a band and embraced being a nerdy guitar teacher.
I'm done talking about it.
It took me 35 years to get that kind of money…
I'm pretty content with what I have. But you never know, one's gotta go to bring another on board.
But also the opposite is as well. I spent thousands getting what I wanted and ended up being happy with the ones that cost next to nothing
Of course CNC has changed the game quite a bit since we started this racket.
Nope. Sold both my Stratocasters over the past couple of years, will get (or build) another one some day. There are also other guitars that I would like to have (at least for a while) including Fender Jazzmaster, Mosrite Ventures model electric, Gretsch 6120, Les Paul goldtop. I may have to do some horse trading to get them, but I ain't done yet!
Hey stranger , how are ya
Hi Darko, always nice to hear from you!
I have pretty much all ( in truth more) than I need. In the past that didn't stop me from buying more guitars. However, my advancing age (67) and ever worsening arthritis in my left hand has me thinking no more guitar purchases. If an unbelievable deal for something I would play came along, I may be tempted. But something I currently own would have to go.
I'm better than ever Thunder, thanks! Good to see the G-family is doing fine
You too Au!
