Did you ever not need a guitar, but wanted one anyway?

    Saw a 60's Tribute SG today for $629 shipped no tax. I love P-90s and don't have an SG. Damn these 0% for 21 month cards are tempting . . . :bonk:rotflmao

    I have 4 and I am looking at a few I do not need right now. It helps that you can sell or trade and get something back but not so much recently.

    Nope, never happened. I read this forum several times a day and subscribe to several guitar magazines, study every detail of every guitar and amp and effect, play every guitar I can get my hands on yet never feel desire for anything beside my Squire tele and Crate amp.

    The Squire and my Crate love me and so does my wife and dog.

    That reminds me of a Tom Petty quote from a short interview I saw on YouTube. He's in his room of guitars, literally hundreds, and says "Yeah, it's gotten a little out of control. You only NEED one."

    I want a Les Paul Junior! It would be stupid for me to have one, since I'm not playing in a band, and already have a wonderful P-90 guitar that's more versatile. But I still want it.

    Oh, and those 0% credit card deals don't look good on your credit report, should you need to buy or refinance a house at some point.

    Yeah, the dude selling the '02 Les Paul for $1350 here right now is creating an internal struggle of epic proportions....

    That's a really funny question to be asking on THIS forum! LOL

    I've actually been in "sell it if I ain't usin' it" mode lately. But still there're guitars I want even though I more than have it covered. It never ends.

    I might be able to make a case for needing the first one or two I ever owned, but the 60 or 70 I've bought (and sold) since then... probably not...
