    Wow. That's nice, CyberFerret.
    I live alone & find myself not speaking for extended periods. When I laugh out loud, I've felt strange hearing my own voice after more than a day. Singing is nice & fills space.
    I've always been more music oriented than gear/tone in life.
    Every now & then when I'm feeling stuck, I further my music theory/application & try it with ear training/ intervals & singing.
    This understandably goes beyond any lick/pedal/amp.

    Since I've got my R8, my Fender Closet Classic and my PRS McCarty 594, I don't really find myself needing any new guitars.

    The longest I ever went was several years. I was happy and content in the 2000's and didn't buy anything. Around 2010 I got the itch again to play and started looking for toys. So I usually buy/trade/sell a couple of things a year. Lately as LarryWallwart put it I'm not needing too much. I'm happy with what I have.

    I have spurts. I might buy 3 guitars in one month and then nothing for over a year.

    Well, I'm starting over as of yesterday. :(

    I have this en route:

    But I made my indiscretion count as my own little trifecta of sorts as I've built these up over the past three weeks:

    From 1999 - 2008. This encompasses my last three years playing electric for a long time (sold all that gear off in 2002) and a stint from 02 - 08 playing only one acoustic, an old Alvarez that I ended up giving to a friend who was moving. Decided to get back into electric in 08 ... within two years, bought five guitars, four amps, and a couple of pedals.

    Uh oh... my post was only current for five hours.

    :oops:

    I'm trading an amp and a few $$$ for an MIJ Geddy Lee signature Jazz bass over the weekend.

    :p
