    You and Lonn could make an agreement to browse each others gear exclusively. Then neither one of you would buy each other's stuff. Problem solved. :thumb::whistling:

    "Postie Statue".:D:D:D

    It's true. This can be a bottomless hole. You don't need most of the gear you think you do. No matter how appealing they might be, they're not essential to your artistic life (if you have one).
    If it makes you happy, go for it but remember what it is and what it is not.

    Bingo.
    I've not played for pay in over 30 years.
    I've not played in front of an actual audience of more than 4 or 5 in 25 years.
    I don't NEED 30 guitars.... but I'll probably have 40 before 2025.

    Yeah.

    I'm just trying to gas with discipline, focus on my two gear goals: a Jazzmaster and a Hummingbird. I stray too much.

    Keep your eye on the prize. The Hummingbird/Jazmaster. Window shop for nothing else. When you see the deal and your ready. Don't hesitate. The deal won't last long.

    But it's random @CB91710 . We need specifics. Deals on Hummingbirds. Not easily found.

    Your not helping. Oh wait. Neither did I.
