I've had the McCarty for a while now, used it a bunch with the band I was in when I got it, and now not so much. I keep going back to it, playing it for an afternoon, then sticking it right back in the case. I haven't seriously gigged it in about five years. I have some history with it too...it was stolen out of our rehearsal room and recovered. Now, the dillema...I just don't play the thing. I've really been jones-ing for a 335 for a while, but have talked myself out of a couple of trades towards one that would have involved the McCarty, because I'm just too worried that I'll miss the thing after it's gone (I know, I may have just answered it all right there). But, it just sits there. My other guitars get all the playing time. Talk me into/out of moving the McCarty and possibly getting into a 335. I know, really rough life I have here Thanks in advance for any and all comments.
