    I'm liking that a lot , Charlie !
    the palette is similar to some Atkinson Fox pieces that I've seen __ and the depth is apparent by the detail / saturation towards the foreground , fading into the background

    just for fun , look up some of the works done by Fox
    and for a color boost __ some of Maxfield Parrish paintings

    looking at your list , you have me beat by two . I'll have to catch up :laugh2:

    seriously though . at one point I was very happy with one electric , and one acoustic . things have gotten out of control in the last few years ___ and now I have so many , that I worry about neglecting some of them

    it may turn into a gifting situation , just to thin the herd of one's that don't get enough attention . but there are still quite a few models that I want . and I need to get some more playing time in

    but hopefully I'm solving that problem today

    The ideal would be to actually own a guitar shop, to get some credibility for hoarding :D

    I could hire Phil as a angry sales clerk to scare annoying customers away ;)

    I have a decent Alvarez 12 string that gets that Zoso sound perfectly but Indon't play it often enough. My Sunlite 6 string has a broken headstock (argh!) so is currently unplayable. I do play an old Yamaha classical sometimes which I used to do most of my songwriting on.
    For the last several years I prefer to synthesis acoustics by, I guess you'd call it additive synthesis.

    VG-8 acoustic models+ Guitar (often a Casino or Wildkat) through a Zoom 505 transducer effect then through a Korg AX10a acoustic modeler...then sometimes coupled with, say, a guitar sample or FM synthesis guitar tone. I can get some unique "inside your head" tonez that way. And no micing!

    have an important meeting in about an hour . first time my palms are actually sweating in years . . .

    I can't handle 60 hours a week anymore __ or at least not at this moment in time . I'm going to try to pass off a project to the next lowest bidder on it . and pray that it works out . 30 hours of my work week would be gone , with only 35 percent of the money lost

    my sleep schedule suffered tremendously this last week , and if I keep going at this rate , it will affect many different aspects of my health . not worth the extra money

    with Laura being promoted to a manager position at her work , it will be the first time in 20 years , that she'll ( possibly ) be earning more money than me . her Etsy adventures might have to wait until Spring now ( after I fully equipped her work space with a variety of machinery and tools )

    never gets boring here

    :lol:
    I'd be fine with most people and have already been offered a partnership in a guitar store which I declined.
    What I couldn't stick are those hard core condescending know it all's that hang around guitar stores as if it were their local pub. Constantly noodling around in a corner , calling everyone by their first name , never buying anything and if they do expecting a 50% discount on everything and offering advice to every customer that walks through the door...:facepalm:

    For some mad reason that sentence reminded of this. Don't know why.

    Sid,
    Just avoid any ladies who claim to be a time traveller you may meet and who encourage you to have more tattoos or you may up sharing the same fate as Rod Steiger and wandering the universe for eternity.
