    Well, that’s a work of art! I think you are 100% right.
    After ponying up the money to buy my LP Standard 50s, the guitars in the $500-$800 range that I had been buying/selling/trading suddenly have lost their powers to seduce me. I just find I am perfectly happy with my Standard. It always will deliver anything I need, it’s now a matter of my abilities.

    Nice. It's super to have a loved special instrument. I really enjoyed a few Les Pauls I tried. What's strange is I really came from acoustic player so a LP would seem really heavy or maybe dense because the bigger semi-hollows are not really lightweights.

    Time might have changed things. It was now in 2013 when I was first able to try some Collings electrics. At that point the prices were absolutely competitive and less against the Gibson Memphis and custom shop.

    There's no denying I lost the common sense or discipline I try to have with money over my two special guitars but as said, it stopped what was a lot of buy, sell, trade that was not exactly a money making activity.

    It's rare that an instrument purchase is an investment but starting 1-2 years ago I've seen the rare sales of used Santa Cruz model much like mine go for more than I paid for it.
