    Sold my old guitar day -

    Took my oldest, a Yamaha AES800, back to the same Guitar Center where I bought it probably 25 years ago. This was my favorite guitar for a long time. Recorded a number of tracks with it. But, when it went into temporary storage earlier this year along with all my other guitars, it was not the first or second or third to come home. In fact all my hangers got taken up by newer ones. It had some good fret wear on the lower 5, a wobbly knob, and one of the screws in the bridge always buzzed unless I glued it in place. The neck was a little narrow for my taste.

    I went through the hypothetical exercise of never seeing it again, and decided to let it go. The amount of money is not enough for me to worry about trying to sell it myself e.g. through Reverb.

    GC Used had one a few weeks ago but it's gone now. Reverb had two active yesterday and what the guy at GC did as far as I can tell was to offer me half of the lowest priced one on Reverb. Totally anticipating this, I accepted.

    I also got rid of an old 1.5 octave MIDI keyboard that Starving Musician a few blocks away told me they didn't want because they couldn't sell it. GC gave me $25 which again was just fine. This is probably where their distribution network is better than Starving Musician which just has 3 stores in the Bay Area.

    I'd had that one for probably 20 years and used it a couple times. I'm not really a keyboard player but I do have a MIDI setup so I do use a keyboard every now and then. The one I have now has CV outputs to work with my modular stuff (which is also in storage).

    I'm contemplating a similar excursion in the near future to clear room for a few items I'd rather have. I may give the kids an opportunity to take some of it, first.
