    I just had to explain a new guitar that arrived. I told her it's really an investment, and that I won't mod it (this may end up being a lie) so I'll always be able to sell it for atleast as much as I bought it, maybe more. This seemed to work somehow... and leaves the door open for new acquisitions; although I dont want to push it.

    Mine was the fact that i worked a butt-load of weekend overtime between October and February..

    And I deserved to have the one Tele to rule them all.

    I unveiled it on Christmas morning as though it were from Santa.

    Better than wrenching on cars in garage and driveway.

    If that doesn't work out, you may need a 2nd new guitar, one with a scalloped fingerboard.

    My favorite excuse for new guitars is ''minimizing fret wear''. Of course this came from TDPRI. We should just rename this place Gasville.

    Told the wife I bought my last guitar at Guitar Rescue Center...The place that rescues abused, abandoned, homeless guitars.

    Exactly what I expected to see from this crowd. There is never any question that you need a new guitar. It's like asking if you need more money! Who doesn't...

    If you just buy it your wife will get over it in a day or 2.

    23.) I feel empty and I need comfort
    24.) I just changed the caps on my amp and I want to know how it sounds with a guitar with this type of finish
    25.) This is the one: with this one in stock, I can thin down the herd later
    26.) I go there often on vacation and it’s such a hassle to carry a guitar there and back again (this applies also to amps)
    27.) Me? I did NOT buy a guitar. Not me. Didn’t do it. I swear, sweetheart.
