    My wife is my gear enabler. I fell in love with a 56 reissue Strat I played at GC one day. She says, “Why didnt you get it?”. My reply, “its 2300.00!” She says, “So?, If you like it, go get it.” I couldn’t do it but, what a gal.

    When I found a new job with a hefty signing bonus my wife insisted I use it to buy my dream guitar....

    ... so I did!

    Never with an AC15... but in the last year my wife has surprised me with a Yamaha revstar 502, got me a Yamaha thr10c, and strongly encouraged me to get the HX effects I was back/forth about getting... they’re a rare breed.

    My wife plays bass and learning guitar. She gets more GAS than I do at times. She just traded up and bought a new Fender Mustang Bass with a neck to die for. She is the one that talked me into going 4x over budget for the National reso that I got over a year ago. Yup, a keeper to be sure and her timing is impeccable, which inspires me to no end.

    I too am blessed. My wife is an enthusiastic participant in my obsession. Just Sunday discussing a potential purchase she said “well I don’t know if I’m cool with some cheap ass Squire in my house”. I swear to god I’ve never loved her more. True story

    The Mrs. has surprised me with a couple of guitars over the years. Just recently she remarked how she likes all the gold knobs on my 2 new Marshalls. That's her way to acknowledge that she approves of the new gear acquisition.

    My wife supports the sale of my gear...

    All kidding aside, my wife has never done that. She fully understands that she has no knowledge of the musical tools I desire. She supports my ultimate goals with grace, but also keeps me accountable for the lust.

    Nice gift!

    My gear won't allow me to have a wife. :D


    However, I just sold a guitar that my girlfriend had tried to talk me out selling! She plays too, so that helps.

    Congrats, you are a lucky guy.
    My ex was more likely to have made off with my amps and sold them as a surprise for when I arrived home. Then she would have taken great pleasure in rubbing it in during her break up text message.
    Happy new amp day.:)
