    So, it's May. I still haven't bought any new guitars... But I didn't say anything about partscasters so technically they're allowed? [emoji16]
    Just bought a nice body and some paint...

    Just a word of caution. I have had guitars I didn't bond with for years. Then one day I picked it up and the magic happened. Don't be hasty and get rid of guitars.

    Only add guitars.....

    I fell off the wagon...bought a 1920's Vega 5 string, with the "Professional" package. Small shop in Mass had it, I felt sorry for it, and them with this stupid virus thing. It needed a lot of work, and I'm just the sucker for it. PS - its not a guitar, so I guess I can technically still remain compliant.

    Still holding strong nothing new for 7 months. Although I was thinking do trades count?
    I do have that 72 tele neck and that brass bridge all i need is a body.

    I'm pretty confident that I won't be buying a guitar this year.

    Maybe an audio interface and a condenser mic and some headphones though...

    I vowed not to buy any musical gear for 2020 and beyond because I convinced myself I have everything I need. A few close calls but so far so good.

    It's a vow I take ever year, but being the sinner I am and GAS being the Devils handmaiden...I have fallen annually.

    Partscasters definitely don't count. I started the thread, I make the rules [emoji16]
    Despite the fact it ended up costing similar to a decent MIM this definitely doesn't count, especially if my wife asks...

    It's certainly cured any Tele GAS for a while anyway, and if I can get through the year with just this purchased, I'll see it as a decent achievement[​IMG]
