    Almost happened when I sold a gun this week. But I think I'm gonna like having a good guitar (there's always room for one more) better.

    Whenever i have work to do around the house, i put on a CD, 10secs into the first song i have to plug in and play along. I can't get anything done around the house. Lucky i don't work from home.

    It always hits me when the buyer shows up to pay and take the item. I clean it all up and sit and look at it and have second thoughts. But I let it go. Always do

    Can't sell anything yet...when the arthritics gets so bad I can't play then maybe.
    In the mean time I still buy.
    I have been known to give stuff away to new players (kids) some have gotten pretty good.

    I’ve decided to build one for each of my three daughters. Hopefully, they will hold onto them. They won’t play the guitars, but if ever they get into financial trouble, they can choose to sell them or, hopefully remain attached to them in memory of their old dad.

    I know that partscasters will never be valuable, but hopefully, if I do the best I can, they will be worth a few pennies.

    All my kids and grandkids have at least one guitar from dear ole dad. As I get new ones they always lay claim to them. A couple I’ve coached because of the value of them.
    Then my wife says they will all be hers when my day comes.
    What’s she going to do with 70 guitars...
