    Hello all, enjoying the forum.

    I have a Telecaster, Les Paul and most recently acquired, a Stratocaster

    Simple question, what should I be looking at next to expand my collection?

    How about spending the time to play those instruments instead?

    Whatever you either need or want...

    Perhaps look at what your favourite guitarists play and therefore suits the tone you’re trying to achieve, otherwise it’s all just a bit random isn’t it?

    Recording gear, so that you can record your performances for us to hear?

    Thanks for the suggestions..

    Firstly, Status Quo - Whatever you want, the worst song ever written haha.


    Secondly, to the poster who said just play more, I just asked the question out of interest to see what people suggested, doesn't mean I'm certainly going to buy whats suggested...
    I know playing and appreciating what I have is the best way about it, but I live in a commercial world with aggressive advertising and a culture of instant gratification.
    I believe you have to earn what you want, and that when you get what you want it will feel that much better than just frivolously buying willy-nilly.fURTHERMORE, you'd appreciate what you have more because of the hard work and patience you put in to acquire it.

    Also to the poster who said an acoustic... I already have 4; Yahama F310, Guild D-240E, nylon string CG122MC and a Spanish acoustic.

    Lastly To the poser who said an amp, I have 2 decent ones already..

    I just use a Sony voice recorder to record my ideas, I don't have enough songs written to buy advanced recording gear. I used to have Pro Edit Tools on Windows, maybe I can use Garage Band with my Mac instead
