I have just gone through all my old gear, sold off everything and bought a couple bad ass guitars (Ibby S470 that I upgraded w/ Dimarzio Evo's and an Ibby AM-93 semi-hollow) as well as 2 new amps (Peavey Vypyr and Peavey 6505+ combo)...so I have fucking awesome gear - gear that is waaaay better than I am.
Yet, I am drawn to the Craigslist classifieds looking for bad ass guitars that I can afford...I find several but just before I pull the trigger on emailing the seller I think "really?? I'm gonna bust $300-$400 on a guitar when I already have two bad ass guitars and great amps??"...then I don't email.
But frankly I feel tortured! I want to spend every penny I have on bad ass guitars even if I already have bad ass guitars...maybe I should save up and instead of buying a $300-$400 bad ass guitar, buy one $2000 bad ass guitar...but would that help?? I feel that it's quantity, not boutique quality..
I'm torn...oh, the curse of playing guitar...sometimes I wish my grandfather would have never taught me Red River Valley..then I'd never know the pleasures of a "new" guitar neck.
