    no wonder your post is in this forum.
    Decafe! Chamomile Tea. Sauna and hot tube, a tasty nutritious meal lots of sleep and a long quiet walk in the woods or something.
    repeat on a daily basis, follow instructions for 14 days , come back in two weeks, that will be $300.00 dollars please. Why is this advice so expensive you might ask ? really good advice , don't come cheap and is a worthwhile investment. cash or debit cards are accepted. see the receptionist on the way out.

    They left one path to No, but it involves dying alone and miserable.

    And even that's somewhat invalid.

    We all die alone. We don't ordinarily take a friend along for that like it was a concert or something and the line at the Pearly Gates is single file only I hear. :D

    Miserable? I dunno. Not everyone is happy about it I suppose but at least some may be relieved the BS is finally over.:) ;)

    The important question is whether you think that a new guitar will make you a better player.

    Personally, I'm 2 guitars better than I was last year at this time. I may have to slow down my rate of improvement before my talent outstrips my budget :D

    I thought I was over GAS. Now this. Dang. On a completely unrelated note, what do you guys think is better, Yamaha or Kramer?

    It helps if you can play a guitar or want to learn to.

    Silly me, I thought the only requirement for a new guitar was sufficient funds.

    Funny, this works opposite in my world. My wife tells me all the time, “if you want that guitar or amp, buy it”. Im the one always making excuses not to.

    Sufficient funds? Does that include a credit card that isn't maxed out?

    Sometimes you may need a few, you know? "Put $800 on the Visa. Put $600 on the MasterCard. Put $186 on the other Visa. Here's $13.39 cash."

    I thought we might see a path leading to a choice between a new guitar and a new banjo. It makes the choice easier...

    I don't ever have to ask myself "should I buy", its always "do I have the money"?

    Easy one. Did a Yamaha ever have its own talk show?
