I was quite well behaved. I probably spent around $1000, all of that going towards two or three pedals, only one of which gets used regularly, so I'll likely end up selling the others. No need for more amps, and no need for more guitarsFor me it was around $850 spend on things such as speakers, tubes, strings, pickups, saddles and wiring harnesses. My endeavor was to make my FCS Telecaster and 65PRRI sound better than how they came from the (Fender) factory. Well, after around 9 months of Rabbit Holes, I am back to as-build on the telecaster (where most of the Rabbit Hole money was spent). Insofar as the 65PRRI. It has a new American voiced speaker (Jupiter 12LC P) vs the G12-65 that it came with.
So, what drove me to chase Rabbits? I got caught-up in a Monty Python scenario where I was searching for the Holy-Grail of sound. During my quest I learned that Quality doesn't have to be expensive and expensive is not always Quality. In the end, I came to realize that there's no one stand-a-lone Holy-Grail as there are just too many variables. What makes my tele or amp have that Holy-Grail sound, doesn't necessarily mean that it will also do the same for your guitar or amp.
Are there Rabbit-Holes for me in 2023? I'll let you know next year if I am still around to update this posting.
