NG and NB Days - Too many brown guitars


I realized recently that all of my guitars were some version of brown - 3-tone sunburst, tobacco burst, bourbon burst, desert burst, etc. All were great guitars, but just didn't inspire me - not just because of looks. All were great guitars, but just weren't exciting me the way I'd want them to. I also had two basses that weren't giving me what I wanted for sound and playability.

So, I sold them all! With the proceeds, I purchased a new Suhr Modern Custom and a second-hand Suhr Modern Custom Satin, plus a third-hand Lakland 55-94 5-string bass. I did hold on to my Fender American Ultra Luxe Stratocaster (gotta have a strat!), but let go of all my other electric guitars.

It's been a few weeks now since I thinned the herd and I have zero seller's remorse. The instruments I have now give me just what I need in terms of sound, playability, and looks.

There was quite a bit of $ leftover after the sales and purchases - so I decided to give the cash to my very supportive better-half.
I feel really fortunate to have what I've got.

Here are the instruments I just got. I also posted a couple of NGDs and a NBD.
