Where can you get an Ibanez 12-string for $50. I’ll take a dozen.

Me in a nutshell right here. Forever a magpie!Yes, and for me it’s not limited to guitar stuff, it can be anything. I can be talking to someone who is excited about their hobby, job, whatever, and suddenly I find myself looking at fishing boats, or telescopes, or drones, or almost anything. Mostly I am restrained enough to limit myself to just looking and appreciating, and don’t actually bring home the pair of Nubian goats, or the civil war bayonets, or the Funko Pop figureines that look like the cast of Giligan’s Island.
I’ll just say that optimism and natural cuiriosity mixed with a dash of stupidity can either be a lot of fun, or a recipe for danger.
Buy a Mexican Strat instead. You get the same guitar at less than half the price.About a year ago, I got a sunburst American Original 60s Stratocaster. I was really craving a sunburst and fixated on it and had no interest in the shell pink or Olympic white Strats. I still have no interest in shell pink, but I’ve really started wanting the Oly white one. I’ve been looking at used ones and almost don’t want to find one that is in great condition, lightweight, and at a good price, because I know I don’t really need it. I won’t allow myself to have two of the same guitar, so I’d have to sell the sunburst, which I also love.
Have you ever found yourself wanting a certain guitar that you have seen for years and never really cared much about, until it starts to grow on you, and then you really want it?
Actually, after years of not being interested in semi-hollowbodies at all
and losing interest in archtops, i have recently become a bit obsessed
with both styles.
