You’re my hero.
Mine's the ex. I ain't gotta listen to squat no more ...(insert huge smiley face)
I don’t know...I haven’t met Thad yet
I'm one of the lucky ones, every piece of equipment I have, my wife bought me, but also, I was working full time, but since I've been on disability, not as much, but she still looks, and asks questions about some models, and I still get GASS, but not as often
Depends on how big the house.
Don't forget the bright lights and sleep deprivation. It helps with the conditioning.
She doesn't care what gear I buy. ENJOY!!!
2 jobs. One to feed my belly, one to feed my mind.
My ex-wife didn´t mind when I played (at that time I played only bass guitar) or brought stuff home.
Then in 2016 I got divorced and started to play guitar. Seemed to me that learning new things would make me better, and it really did!! So I started GASsing and practicing at least one hour a day.
And then I started dating a girl that only pretended to like it when I played or bought stuff, but in reality she hated sharing the attention. So I found another girlfriend who sings a little and we really enjoy playing together. Now she just moved in with me. She is very supportive and encourages me to practice.
That´s something that I do now, not only to save costs and space, but because doesn´t make sense to me having a piece of equipment collecting dust: if I want something new, something has to go. Last week I sold a Commemorative Strat and a Gibson Les Paul and got a CS strat.
we do it the same way. If bills are paid, the rest is mine to spend
I just tell her the truth. Explain why I want or need whatever it is. The other thing is if I'm interested in new gear, I'll usually have something to trade or have the cash for it. And, it works both ways. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
This! Black guitars and black guns... my wife doesn’t know the difference between a les Paul and a strat as long as they’re the same color! (I’m mostly joking, but not completely).
My wife says my sunburst strat and butterscotch tele look exactly the same.
I’m the OP, and I wouldn’t have thought to read so many posts on this topic in two days. Then again, it makes a lot of sense given the majority of us need to deal with this exact issue regularly.
score one for partsocasters. Bits of a guitar are a lot easier to sneak into the house over months than one new guitar showing up on one day.
Mine too on this part
I could NEVER replace her though, I LOVE her way to much
I'm gonna be doing that soon too
My wife and I are partners and thus co-managers of the household, so any significant purchase is discussed. The last discussion was when I bought a few hundred dollars in parts, speaker, and cabinet for a 5E3 amp build. She's in favor of my happiness, as I am of hers, and I really don't remember any contention over any purchase. We live simply, but have some tastes that cost actual money.
The only real surprises are when I pull out a guitar that's apparently new, but is something I just put together from parts in the guitar closet. The idea that you can birth a new guitar from a pile of parts is surprising to most folks.
