As I've been able to play guitar again I've thought about some of the unexpected things about my instruments and wondered if others had similar things. For instance: I have seven guitars, five electric and two acoustic. I also have a digital piano, a sax, and other woodwinds. (Sax was my major instrument in school). The guitar I play the most, the Strat, cost the least. The two on which I spent the most are the least-played. The only two with shielding paint have humbuckers. The three single coil guitars do not. Six of the seven are US-made. The CiJ Tele is the exception. When I had to stop playing I tried selling the PRS Mira to GC, but the offer was absurdly low. When I could play again the Mira was the first I picked up. It's now my second-most played. While I've often wanted a bright-colored guitar like seafoam green or Lake Placid blue, all of them are natural, brown, or dark red. None are fancy or blingy. Even the PRS is about as plain as a PRS can be. I've wanted a 335 (or equivalent) since before I began playing, but I've never bought one. Nor have I bought a Les Paul. While I prefer buying from smaller shops, the two most-played guitars were bought at GC/MF. Having a digital piano really helped get through some dark times, especially as I had to stop playing guitar. I've considered selling my tenor sax several times, but I've never brought myself to do it. I never really experienced GAS with woodwinds, although I could see myself buying a few keyboards if I had enough room. With guitars, though, I keep getting tempted to buy another. I last bought a guitar in 2015. It looks like prices have increased quite a bit in just five years. So, have anything similar, odd, interesting, unexpected?
