    Nope. Never say never. Something cool might fall into your lap.

    I am planning on getting rid of a couple though - I'm giving one away and I might try to sell another. If I get around to it, I'm wanting a '70s thinline, so I'll probably build me a partscaster that looks a lot like this:

    I see a lot of people talking about "planning" or "not planning." What is this?

    One to sell and one to buy in 2020. Actually I already bought the one for 2020. It is going to take a while to build. I should be able to sell the one I want to sell before it gets here. I'm good.

    Well the epi goldtop I mentioned in the original post had just sold on eBay... So that means the special is 75% paid for now
    The other 25% should be done in a couple of months... That's when it gets difficult [emoji38]

    I did, then broke it on 1/1 at 7 am when someone mentioned a too-good-to-pass-up deal. But, karma intervened and the seller canceled the sale. Disappointed but all I needed was yet another cheap project guitar.

    Nah, I wouldn't be able to uphold that vow anyway.

    My first NGD of the year already happened with THIS partscaster (of which I made both the body and neck myself) having been completed.

    let's be honest, anyone who says yes will definitely change their mind when they see that sale on ebay, CL, reverb, etc. "well, i didn't plan on buying one but it was too good of a deal."

    play music!

    If I wasn’t looking at 335’s and Martin OM’s I would get onboard. But, then it would be something else.

    I bought one 12/31 after nearly 3 years. Chances are I’ll make it through this year.

    No. And I made good on it by buying one on New Year’s Day.

    I am so in on the vow. I am done.:) I even scored way beyond my expectations for Xmas.

    So done. No more gear and certainly no more guitars.:)

    Okay, well there is that mini volume/wah pedal I spotted on this forum last week :mad:, but I digress. No. Done. Nada.

    I suppose if that Gibby L-1 fell in my lap ... no, done. Just done I say. Stop tempting me, I'm done.:mad:

    I haven't made any such vow, but my wallet has. Right now, no signs of that changing.
