I cant decide. I want tap tempo and I’m leaning on the analog side, but that Canyon looks cool.
The only thing I intend to buy is a James Tyler Variax guitar.
Nope. It’s gone. Great lil amp, but I had to purge. Two Swarts are plenty.
That's a trap....
all the non-smokers I know don't have better gear than me
I plan on playing the shit out of my gear.
The trick is to calculate how much you were spending on smoking each month, then open a savings account and have that figure automatically transferred from your main account into it after each payday.
Then forget all about it for, say, 5 years (after all you have given up smoking, right?).
The balance in the new account is just bunce. Spending money. For stuff.
When I did it I had over 20 grand* sitting there, which was nice.
Hmm... now what shall I buy?
The agony of choice.
*This amount included my drinking and drugs budget.
I already do something more substantial than that. All of my overtime goes into savings. I work between 1000 and 1500 hours of overtime each year. After taxes that is usually 25-40 k a year.
My gear plans are to sell my '14 R8 and Blueridge acoustic.
You got this, mate. You can do 6 months for sure. Just think of all the cash you can put towards gear.
I plan on moving a bunch of gear, as long as I get my price, if not I will just hang onto this stuff. But here are some of the things I am considering moving along.
Danocaster 56 blond S type
76 Les Paul Custom
65 AVRI strat oly white aged
89 bluesbreaker combo
rocky top 197x clone
76 Marshall 100 watt head
tube screamers, pedals etc.
Rossington les paul, if you have the money.
79 Yellr strat
Sunburst aged strat by relic guitars of u.k. killer srv type aging.
Of course I reserve the right to change my mind, because I change my mind a lot.
What I am going to find is a tweed twin, I had a Victoria years ago, and it was my favorite Fender, because it sounded like a Marshall.
I might be able to swing throwing a cheap ass Frankenstrat-type together, but right now I don't think any gear purchases are likely this year.
That thing is awesome. I might be in for one
Im still wanting my Fender 52 reissue Tele. Not looking for 2018 though.
Enjoy the gear I have more.
I think the consensus is purge which means a further glutted and devalued market. I've sold a guitar this year and attempted to sell several--as well as an amp and a set of congas--with no luck thus far. The guitars I don't play much don't take up a lot of room so I'll hoard them, I guess, before just getting pounded. If I buy used and sell for close to what I paid for them that seems reasonable to me. Has not worked out with flaming success thus far.
Maybe a Victory V40 and/or a used R8 at the right price.
I'm trying to decide what to do with the Christmas money...plus, the Wife got me a Stew-Mac gift card.
I have some files in the cart for the Stew-Mac card, but have found much the same stuff far cheaper from the phone app Wish. I know most (if not all) of their offerings are Chinese made junk, but a file for use on a guitar? As little as I'd use them, I can't imagine putting the thing in a situation where it could possibly break. Haven't made up my mind there, yet.
I keep thinking I want a good compressor pedal, but I also keep thinking that I have all the pedals I need.
I could get a case for the "birthday card" Epi Special. I could save the cash and pool it with some other funds for a fretjob on the Mockingbird, or the J B Player. I could see how much I have to save up for a new electronics package from Neal Moser for the Mockingbird. The choice that makes the most sense is to sit on the cash, and save it until this time next year, and I'll have most of the $$$ together for a DRRI.
Or, I could blow all of the cash on a decent meat slicer from Amazon. My knife skillz are gonna leave me one finger short of a full hand.
Yup, me too. I'm still patiently searching for a black-top CR4 (w/ p-90s, wraptail, & natural back).
I'm also still wanting a Lazy J 20, and although they're fairly easy to find, I'm not pulling the trigger and blowing my CR4 savings only to have the CR4 finally surface shortly after.
Brian Baker's CR4:
I just bought a spare clip-on tuner. That's it for the year.
