I should know better than to look at guitars on the internet. I saw an awesome guitar for sale, but my finances have been placed on wife support.
If you need to save money for a new house, or an new child about to be born I can understand why you need to save money. But I just don't understand where this submission to wife's having veto powers over gear purchases comes from. At what point did marriage change from having the man in charge to having the wife in charge? If its your money and the family budget and savings/investments are covered just buy whatever you want. And the first person to say happy wife, happy life loses a man card.I wish I had a wife who valued money as much as I do. Left to her own devices, my wife would blow all our savings in a couple of years tops. So I'm the one in charge of preserving the funds in our household. Although there is a positive side to this: she doesn't care when I buy another piece of guitar gear, which is nice.
Mostly it comes from not wanting to deal with the fallout, and building leverage so that you too have veto power over even more bullshit purchases she makes. $500 shoes are bullshit IMO. No residual value at all, she doesn't even wear them often, and when she does wear them, she complains that her feet hurt. A guitar or an amp I can at least sell.where this submission to wife's having veto powers over gear purchases comes from
I think I know the one that you're talking about. It was Bahama blue burst with a very nice flame top. Mine is a custom color and it turned out nicely I think.
Can’t say the same. My Suhr GG arrived from the factory with the pickup selector wired faulty and knobs bended. Really expensive guitar. Sold it and never wanted a Suhr again.My Suhr Modern is my #1 guitar. I like my Andersons too but they're too pretty to leave out with a six year-old running around.
