Update: Five years later and I have still not bought a guitar. Expecting to hit the lottery any day now though.Due to financial circumstances, I have not bought a guitar since my 2005 ES-137 Classic. Ten years is too long, though I did inherit m Bill Carson Custom Shop Strat last year from my best friend's partner. As far as any gear goes, I had not even bought a pedal for about five years until last month when I bought a Phase 90. And even that was only because I got $100 in GC gift cards for reviewing their new store.
