    For those of you who watched part 1, thank you for the kind comments
    In case you havent, our fun weekend project continues, this time with a few unique beasts such as the Gibson Bonabyrd, PRS 513 Brazilian Rosewood and an ES 355/335 3 pickup black beauty hybrid

    She's adorable ... and I've never used that word before.

    If my wife guessed an $850 guitar was $5,000, I would instantly trade it in for a $5,000 guitar.

    :D

    Funny, I have the same conversations with my wife w/o the video. She is not as understanding as I am only up to 20 guitars.

    Yes, I struggle to see a scenario where this ends well or cheaply

    Yes, next year's video will be YOU guessing how much HER diamonds weigh.

    ... coming from a guy who seuto-bartered a custom shop Strat for 1.3 carats worth of earrings this past Christmas.

    She knows how much I spend on gear because we have online banking. She doesn't say anything because like Yngwie Malmsteen she doesn't wanna face the ****ing fury.

    I know what her Roland and Nord synths cost. She knows what my guitars cost.

    Is there anything more Boomer culture than "hurr durr the Wife don't know what I spend, ha ha ha"???

    Have more respect for your significant others.

    While I agree with your sentiment, I don't think this is quite the same thing. My wife knows exactly what my guitars cost when I buy them because we budget together and talk through any major purchase, BUT, ask her to go through my collection a year later and list the prices? Probably not. That's just because she doesn't cherish them like I do :). We can have different interests and we're ok with the fact that we're not experts in each others' hobbies.

    She won't have to guess...I have a spreadsheet with all the info on everything so she can divest as she feels necessary should the need arise.

    I don’t see how this would be unique to a very slim portion of the overall population.
