Hmmm, sounds like you've done this yourself, Les.

Pretty hard for me to pull off, with only two guitars to my name, a tiny house, a Honda Civic with a trunk full of beach stuff, and no basement. But I DO have neighbors.....

Thanks for the suggestion.

She has to be pretty clueless, too.

Speaking of clueless, a couple months back my mom asked me "When did you get that pretty guitar?" It was the Agile she had bought me back in 2007. :lol:

I don't think most women can pick out a new piece of gear if it's piled in with the other stuff, and we keep our mouths shut (Unless it's a double stack amp or a Hammond B-3) . Now, if you pay for it from a common checking account she'll probably catch that.

I am living proof that women can't tell one guitar from another espcially if they are the same color.

Man, have we gotten off-topic here! But I sure am enjoying the exchange.

I personally love guitars like the one your talking about...It is like my life's mission to save every old guitar i come across and restore it to playable condition ..
If i see an old Matsumoku MIJ 335 styled hollow body at a garage sale or flea market i can count on the fact that my wallet will have a few less dollars in it and that i will be buying flowers on the way home so my wife will not notice the new guitar in the corner..
I have also found that either a gift certificate from a spa or finger nail place is a sure way to get the wife out of the house so i can sneak the new guitar in ...Of course then when she comes home she is so happy even if she does notice the new guitar she doesn't say much... :)

You are one devious fellow, and I take my hat off to you.
