FWIW I could have posted this in any of the forums. Couple of weeks ago I was having my 4th guitar PLEK'd, and then back for another adjustment for some unexpected buzz. I was a bit obsessed about it, thinking about fall-away, darker vs brighter guitars, fret material, the "uniqueness" of some guitars... Then I had a severe emotional reaction to something that happened in my life. I'm looking at my guitars and pedals and other gear, thinking, WTF is all of this for? What's the point? This stuff doesn't really matter. It was the juxtaposition of my obsession that was almost yesterday, and my feelings today, that shocked me. I have been obsessing for years, having pointless fun. I think I could ditch it all today.
