    I've been trying to sell or trade my Guild M75. Lovely guitar, 30+ years old, beautiful mahogany finish, nicely aged binding, new paf-clone pickups. But I just haven't been playing it much, favoring instead my strat and tele, and I figured I might as well turn it into cash or a new amp and let it get played by someone who appreciates a fine old Guild from the Westerly factory. Anyway, I got no takers, either here or on ebay. So last night I took it to the blues jam. Everybody was like, 'hey, nice guitar, is that new?', as though they hadn't seen it before, even though it's been at the jam a few times over the years. Then I played a set and I knew while I was playing that it was going really well. When I was done, at least two guys came up to me and told me I had never sounded or played better. I think the universe is telling me something...

    You mean like not being able to come up with the $110 to by that '56 LP GT back in 1967?
