I'm a bit of a GAS addict. Getting older and having more cash generally means I can be less careful about my guitar purchases. But sometimes I get a bit too trigger happy. Sometimes I can't help but want some guitar because I just looks so freakin' cool. Oftentimes I won't even do proper research like check out demos. Most of these were fine sounding andplaying guitars, but I wouldn't know because I was all about the looks! - CIJ Jazzmaster in burgandy mist. I just HAD to have one with a matching headstock. And offsets are cool lately. Not sure I even had a clear idea of what they sounded like - Cort Sunset. That retro vibe, bigsby, filtertrons, the curl of the white pickguard on the black. How could it fail? - Telecaster classic player thinline deluxe. Telecaster, humbuckers, thinline. I'm sold! No matter how many times I'm left unimpressed by wide range pickups, I had to have it! I had hand-wound pickups and a bigsby (and new bridge) ordered before I'd even played the guitar. - Fidelity double standard (prototype). Bit of an indulgence to go booteek (though it was reasonably priced). Had no demos of this configuration, just bought it on looks alone because I fancied a purchase.
