I have been on a zen thing trying to de-clutter the house (old clothes, photo albums, high school/college homework papers, etc) and even though I got rid of a ton of things being paid off handsomely in extra space, I decided to keep the Ibanez Artcore. I could have got close to $300 for it in its mint condition with a list price of $533. I know so many great guitarists who have just one electric guitar (even one who even owns a "School of Rock" and has a Grammy*), so who am I to have more than one electric guitar in a small 800 sq. ft. living space with wife and dog? I got over years of GAS but somehow I decided to keep that inexpensive yet nice Ibanez Artcore and for a cheap guitar, it's the best I have ever owned. * - If that sounds weird, another local guy where I live who plays guitar fairly well and also has a Grammy (but as a classical violinist) has no guitar. What is funny is that the best guitarists I know, and have known, don't have a lot of gear. My guitar teacher played for Miles Davis and he had one guitar and was always broke. I think part of why the good guitarists have little is that outside of being a famous star, being a professional musician is a hard life.
