I have been inspired by the "What guitar did you buy this year" thread. However, for reasons pertaining to finances, available storage space and the pursuit of domestic bliss, I usually have to sell something(s) to get something else. Are you in this same boat with me? If so, what did you sell and what did you do with the money? This past year I sold; Larrivee D-60 acoustic, 1989 American Standard Strat, 1998 American Standard Big Apple Stratocaster, Set neck Epiphone Les Paul special, 1971 Fender Jaguar. All were bought used over the last 10 or 12 years and I wasn't really playing any of them anymore. I am very careful about only buying guitars that I feel I can re-sell and at least break even. I am fortunate to have recouped my original investment and then some on all these. With the combined profit I bought my brand spankin' new Gibson J-45 Standard. I am well satisfied.
