    Is GAS a curable disease?

    What worked for me was the end of readily available rosewood fret boards, now having a slew (like 32) guitars now, I have cut down to "one ish " additions a year.

    Who's had a plek done?

    I have had at least 10 of mine "PLEK serviced" none by Sweetwater. On a visit there, witnessed the plek dude results right out of the machine, in my opinion destroyed the guitar. PLEK is a tool, you still have to shop for an experienced tech with the PLEK. Results are still driven by the...

    Older, happily (or unhappily) married people, what advice do you have for 26 year old me?

    Trade her in, marriage is the #1 reason for divorce. Try again in another decade or so, then you could possibly be ready.

    I am down to my short list of "Bucket list" guitars and this was found last weekend unexpectedly in a pawn shop, followed me home. I am a huge fan, saw him at Sweetwaters gearfest about a decade ago, these were available then, but had to choose house payment, or cool guitar... House won then.

    Fender MIM: how much would you offer?

    If it was not modified, and was "cleaned up", $600 to $700 is real money in the current market. It is modified, and not cleaned up so half of that is reasonable.

    Rosewood Yay!

    Funny how PRS can build strats with rosewood boards for hundreds less than anything Fender can. Years back Squiers with rosewood boards could be had for like $100, now none at all are produced. Big fan still of the rosewood stuff. As for the manufactures that refuse to use it, thanks a ton for...

    Depart with my Fender strats to get a Silver Sky

    Getting huge GAS for a Silver Sky. They look amazing, from what I have seen the build quality is quite honestly the best. I know my favorite artists like Clapton and John Mayer do not sport the PRS stuff. Still think the PRS is in my short future for 2023

    What about those 335 type guitars?

    I have the top two are semi-hollow and the bottom one is hollow. Out of all of the guitars at home, that Epiphone 335 pro is awesome. I have two SG's an Epiphone and a Gibson. They are way different. As stated earlier, go play some the differences are amazing, and very difficult to explain.
