    I bought this for myself. I only got to play it for two weeks then back to work. I miss it already!

    Wife and kids are always looking for ideas. So I pointed them to the following:

    - Korg SDD3000 when it went on sale for $240 new. Incredible pedal

    - BK Butler 5 knob Tube Driver. Mint. Priced like a good condition 4 knob. I figured it’s a Classic. Fun stuff. little
    Shipping snafu so won’t be here till Monday but we like to do 12 days of Christmas anyway.

    I also grabbed myself an English Muff’n for nostalgia (was my first drive pedal years ago).

    Kinda funny because I’ve moved to an ME80 live. But I have a couple small boards to mess around with at home. I figure it’s self-defense: when I play through them occasionally I realize my ME80 is actually great, and GAS subsides.

    An Ibanez Mikro Bass (discounted from Sweetwater) so I can play at my desk at home and not hit the wall, 4 pairs of New Balance sneaks so I won't run out in the foreseeable future and some "fallen flag" railroad books.

    it is a desantis new york undercover. got it plus the left hand holster for about 60% off.
    i also have a few galco miami classics which i like better, but they stopped selling the left hand holsters by themselves, and they are expensive.

    Just my unscientific observation. Not just this thread but it caught my attention that Strat aquisition and interest has been way up over the last few months around here.

    Tele is there for scale only. Super fun amp with three channels and onboard delay. Adapter or 6 x AA batteries powers it. It's super light and fits in any suitcase perfectly.

    That's very nice! I have been wanting a '52 Hot Rod Tele for a long time. Each time I find one, and they're getting harder and harder to find, I count all the guitars I have and then hesitate to pull the trigger. I think I'm going to have to make a not and stick it on may computer saying: "whatever you do - don't count".

    I bought myself the notorious Baja tele,
    and I must say if I only owned one tele
    this would be it. I don't know why I waited
    so long and distrusted all the hyperbola.

    This one is named Buster
