We guitarists are crazy and GAS is tempting!

I've been thinking about chosing some to sell and I got no step further than you!! In fact, I already got a new one approaching, it's a Firebird this time. DOH!

Face it, we're doomed! :twisted:

I will probably be second guessing myself on the wisdom of selling the guitars for quite a while. But on the other hand, I have a nice little nest egg now sitting there to go buy another. I don't have many rules but one I do have is money that comes in from guitars goes to other guitars. The hunt is on. Can you say Kalamazoo KG-14?

Of course some of the prices are crazy but then again-they ain;t making any more of em.
What I find crazy is that some one will spend 5-600 dollars for a chinese copy of a Harmony 44 or jimmy Reed thintwin

Kids these days are so much better off with what they've got to learn on.
As for me, I choose based on playability, tone, projection and appearence. Brand comes last as, with all so called modern branding and advertising, that's where the majority of the bullshit lies! :roll: :lol:

That's something I've never been able to understand. I'm quite old too, bottleneck, but I was young once and some crap guitars passed through my hands. But as I improved in technique I sold or traded in and upgraded my instruments. So forty years go by and now the same plywood guitar from my youth would be worth a heap just because it's 40 years old. Made on the cheap, it has magically turned into a 'vintage collector's item'. Well I suppose if a person collects old and badly made guitars in the same way that someone else might collect match boxes, it's fair enough. But the badly made plywood guitar stays the same no matter how old it gets. It's a pity that the same rationale doesn't apply to us humans. :D Peace


i get sentimentally attached to cheap guitars ,that's part of the problem,haha.that's part of it.although not all the guitars i'm talking about are cheap,some just aren't particularly good for bottleneck blues.

it seems the old"if it was budget then,it is budget now"rule has fallen by the wayside.people are paying as much now for old harmony rockets etc as they are paying for premium brands.go figure

[and thats why I havent got any more!!! Money is going into learning!!] So... that being said... I love working on the things, so they add up. I have my Epi LP that is one of those guitars that jumpped out and grab you and wont let you put it down!! It will take a special guitar to make me sell that!!. I have a Regel resonator... Im realy starting to connect with it, and have been playing just that for the last few months... Will I sell it... Maybe... but not intell I can spring for that national!! I have a lap steel that I built myself. Thats going nowere.... I do have a cheap epi accustic that I got for free, and have spent hours getting it playable! It plays... but to me it has no soal... Thats the first to go, but not till I find a new one... Ive been looking for some old accustic to fix up, but havent found one yet... SO those are my toys. Im thinking of building a tele one day.... and planning a CBG, but I can be happy with my LP, a reso, my Lap steel, and a accustic... so if I sell.... it will be to upgrade.
