You know, sometimes I feel like I've spent a lot in guitars but then some A-hole puts things in perspective. "You just spent $1,500 on a guitar! You're an idiot!" Well, this genius had just spent $15,000 on a used Harley that he barely rode. "A $4,000 motorcycle with an $11,000 decal on the gas tank." I told him. He wanted to fight. That got me to thinking, I've probably spent maybe $15,000-$20,000 on guitars, hunting and fishing gear, and golf since high school. That's almost 35 years. He also had spent like $10,000 on a Chevy stepside from the seventies that he called a "collectible" and drove maybe a dozen times a year. I called it a used, old truck. Now, this isn't a big thing but the moron made about as much as I did (and that wasn't much) and I watched him blow $25,000 on toys in a couple years as he was giving me crap over a couple of guitars and a shotgun? Whenever I get to feeling like I've spent too much on a guitar, I just look at what other people blow on their hobbies and I quickly realize that a new amp to go with that guitar is a pretty damn good idea!
