    I'm getting married in two weeks, so I told the future Mrs. That here in two weeks she would legally own 6.5 guitars, but I get to keep the other 6.5.

    Last night I saw a stack of picks on the dresser that she'd found in my pockets and I split them up 4 for me, 4 for her, but I told her not to get any ideas because they're not hers yet. Come to think of it, I can't afford to lose 4 more picks! :lol:

    Try it this way:

    (...that's the Better Halves, a duo out of Austin, both very good pickers, and Jimmy Joe? like Jerry Reed, only more down to earth...)

    Probably not the best way to look at it, but just a joke so it's all in fun.

    Well congratulations! If she hasn’t told you to downsize the herd she’s a keeper.

    I think there is another if you count the banjos in there. I didn't want to open up the can of worms that would follow that though. You know the whole "if you're hiding guitars from your wife... Your marriage isn't starting out... Blah blah blah."

    I had a thread recently about making a wedding band and finding it odd to play guitar while wearing it. I got a lot more responses concerned that I was trying to find an excuse not to wear it, or that I was trying to step out on my wife than I was expecting. All in good fun.

    That's a good one!! I'm gonna have to use that. But really I'll have to get 13 more to replace them. Because if I only get 6.5 more, she'll own 3.75 of those too!

    You know that's not how it works. But she's not much of a shoe gal.

    Quick, go buy the 13 cheapest guitars you can find! Then you can give those to her and yours will all be safe.

    All jokes aside congratulations

    I believe if she is left handed, then he is entitled to all of her right shoes and vice-versa.

    I just hope that when I die, Mrs. 8track doesn't sell my guitars based on what I told her I paid for them.

    You realize, of course Steve, that after you're married you'll have to buy two guitars just so that one of them will actually be yours.
