    Boss Nextone Stage for $320ish all in.

    That was it and I was close to skipping it as well.

    Indeed, here in Greece VAT is 24%, plus import tax from USA, plus steep postage costs, it's becoming hard to justify buying something like a guitar from a North American dealer.

    And practically no way of returning a defective/unsuitable item back.

    I bought a 8tb external harddrive because it was the best deal this year.
    And an Orange Brent Hinds Terror....
    Everything else was toooooo much.

    I ended up getting a Nextone Stage. It was a real bargain. Great amp, insanely good for 300 bucks.

    I’m actually selling stuff at the moment. And I have been trying hard to find pedals that I might like, but haven’t been tempted to get anything. Very unusual for me. Maybe I’m getting old.

    You (and I) didn’t buy anything because quite frankly nothing was needed. At some point you reach a level of redundancy that’s so illogical it negates spending habits. The majority of musicians should just spend their money on educational tools and lessons, etc. Practice, technique, ear training and composition will take you much further than any new piece of gear.

    The people I have come across that have been absolutely obsessive about buying/selling/trading, etc. have been hands down the worst musicians. In other words they absolutely suck at the instrument (on every level). The swapping is a delusion of their minds because they feel the effort put into the buy/sell/trade game will make them better players.
