OK, basically, my situation is that I have yet another year of studentdom ahead of me, coupled with a pretty shaky employment situation (as in, struggling to find work), and am contemplating selling a few of my guitars that are currently stuck at my parents' house just to make my finances a bit more stable for a while.
The ones that would go would be at least my Jackson 6er and Yamaha baritone 6er. I'd rather note sell either of them, especially the Jackson, as that was my first nice guitar, and I'd had an idea in the back of my head about eventually passing it on to someone, but they both need pick-up swaps to be up to par with my other guitars, and I'm note sure whether I can afford to have so much money tied up in things that are basically expensive toys (I never gig at all, don't record much, and aren't likely to be joining a band any time soon) when I don't get the chance to play them much.
if you look at them as toys, go for it. sounds to me like even though its not a work implement, that the jackson in particular youre attached to and dont actually view as a toy, youre just quantifying it as such to justify selling it.
if you view them as toys, sell away. just make sure thats what you really think first, and not something youre just telling yourself
