1954 reissue Les Paul Custom looked niceWhat does the 4500,- have the other 5 don't? There can't be a lot wrong with a 1500,- guitar. I personally never spent more than 700,- on a guitar. I would like to have a choice of different kind of guitars and I like to tinker and mod. With one 4500,- guitar choice and modding is out of the question. Must be a very special guitar.
Thanks - great story. May I ask which guitar and amp survived the first time, and which the second time?I was once in a band wherein as a group, it was decided to purchase a van. Then trouble came up, and I got stuck with the bill. As a result, I had to liquidate everything I had, guitar and amp-wise, and was forced to own just one guitar, and one amp. This was from a fairly sizable collection of custom made and vintage guitars back in the 1970's.
I got back up to a nice collection aqain after about ten years, and was put in a similar situation with my wife's business partners taking off on her and leaving her stuck with a lot of debt. They were later found and thrown in jail, but the damage was already done.
I was again left with one guitar and one amp.
I am now 71, and have amassed the guitars and amps I currently use, but nothing like the collections I previously owned and used. At this point, I am happy to have the guitars I use, and am not interested in going back to the larger grouping I previously had and used.
But, I am happy that at least I did have and use the guitars I did. If I were to be able to do it again, while some of the guitars might be different, others would not be changed out.
