I'm in the 10 to 15 range, and that's after a few 2 for 1 trades to get the number down.
but that's including a couple of basses, a few acoustics, a Weissenborn, etc.
with electrics, I know what I like and want to use every day, and then other things I don't play all the time,
but I know that...
i had a “Studio Lite” when I was a teen - NAW.
and an Edwards goldtop with P-90s that was okay.
but I got a Custom Shop SG a while back and was both surprised and impressed how much better it was than my SG Standard.
It got me thinking I needed to try an LP from the Custom Shop.
I'm in the strange situation of having never looked for "the one"....but I think I found it anyway.
I have a couple other electrics I don't think I'll get rid of, a couple I'm sure that I will,
but for the first time in a bunch of years I don't think I'll be selling guitars to buy more guitars...
I'm not going on a fast, but it won't be much. I'm dedicated to not changing my pedal setup or "tone chasing" at all this year. It's about creating.
That said, I'd like to have a backup amp and guitar that wouldn't be so dissimilar to my favorites, but I'll be trading/selling to pick those up.
Man, rough choice.
I think I'd have to pick an acoustic - if it has to be one I already have, my Martin 000-28vs. if people are going big with pre-war Martins, I'll just take a lil' ol Larson Brothers built jumbo, please.
the body shape is great - very comfortable. if you can get over any bridge issues, the trem is excellent as well.
for the avant types like Nels or Thurston and Lee, the string length behind the bridge is something to use.
I know Sonic Youth got deeply into them because they were cheap and they...
Like a lot of you it seems, I started taking piano lessons when I was maybe 7, only lasted a couple of years.
Played trombone in school band starting when I was 10.
Wanted a guitar, begged for it, a family friend loaned me a nylon string when I was 13 and I was instantly obsessed.
If you don't think you need one, you don't.
Personally, I go through stages - times when I'll almost exclusively play electric, and then I'll get obsessed with fingerpicking again and stay on acoustics.
I always wanna have at least 2 nice acoustics around, just to leave in different tunings...
I rarely break strings, but I have had switches go out on me - I always bring a backup.
Spare cables and a lunchbox head are always in reserve as well.
Super impressed you dudes can change a string that fast, or while playing - I'm slow.
At one time I could roll a number with my left hand while...
