    Realistically, I could use a nice MIM Strat. I gave my old Strat to my daughter. I have access to it whenever I want, but it's not "mine" anymore, so I leave it alone. If that makes sense.

    Long term, I would like a Gibson 335, but that's a savings/trade a couple other guitars project.

    I not only have no plans to buy a guitar this year, but I’m pretty sure I’m not buying any more gear in 2019. Maybe a mid-size higher-end SS amp in 2020. I want something light.

    I’m feeling swamped with guitars these days...

    What?? this IS retirement... that's when ya lay back and do what ya wanna do, right? Well.. guess what . . . I'm dooin' 'zactly what I wanna do...

    I'm not the kinda guy to get a Winnebago, and go sit in a line somewhere to watch water squirting out of the ground, or Grizzly's snatch sushi from a stream... or go to some tourist's trap and look at all the same made in China shi* that all the other tourist's traps have.. remember, I live 30 miles from St Augustine... and 6 hrs from Key West or Savannah... (I drive fast... still) and... believe me... DisneyLand doesn't even register on the amievenremotelyinterestedinthiscrapola-o-meter....

    When the sun goes down, I've done something that will out live most of us... and it's just too much fun to stop....

    when ya see me stop taking orders and concentrate on repairs etc.. then ya know.. I'm officially old... :cry:

    Realistically, I'm going to build a partscaster Strat. However, a good deal on a silverburst Paul (Epiphone is fine by me) and I might have to grab that instead. I've got a bit of a thing for them. But only in silverburst.

    I have been on a guitar and amp spree this past couple of years and I want to get off the hamster wheel of GAS. BUT first I'm gonna get a second tele type, either a homebuilt or a USA G&L. Then I have a hankering for one more amp - leaning towards just getting a DRRI since every modeling amp I have ever used has eventually settled on "cranked up deluxe" and stayed there for me. Then that's it for at least 12 months if not longer.

    I've been giving serious thought to electrifying an acoustic. I'm not sure about under the saddle or an internal mic, but a sound hole pickup may work for me. I don't need or want it to sound just like an acoustic guitar. I have a '74 Ovation Balladeer that I rarely use. It's in excellent condition for its age with only a couple of minor cracks in the plastic rosette around the sound hole. I also have an amp I never use anymore, a SuperChamp XD. As I recall, it has one very jazzy sounding low gain setting that may work for acoustic. I've never heard an electric acoustic that sounded as good as a pure acoustic through a mic. Some sound good, but they always sound like an electric acoustic pretending to be an acoustic guitar. I can hear the difference. I'm looking for something different from anything I have, different sounding than an acoustic or an electric guitar, and a sound hole pickup in my Ovation may do it for me without breaking the bank. I remember Gabor Szabo, a Brazilian guitarist from the late '60s, early '70s, playing a guitar with a sound hole pickup. I have a decent memory for sounds. I'm looking for something like that.

    Classic brown tortoiseshell would look nice, though, in my opinion.

    I think I'm pretty well past that point these days. Its more like if I see something I fancy. Really need to start getting a few listed for sale to be honest. Got this one on the way though.

    I have my travel guitar build that's nearing completion. A few more coats of lacquer and curing time are all that remains.

    I also have about a dozen cigar box guitar necks and bodies waiting to be completed. Now that I've finally been able to clear off some workspace in the garage amidst my wife's gardening stuff I should be able to complete them.

    Other than that, it will be something cheap and used that I run across, most likely in a state of disrepair.

    Nothing on the radar for me.

    The only things I kind of keep an eye for are a good deal on a White Falcon or a vintage Mosrite Ventures model.

    I have one on the way, then I need to start selling/giving away some. I would like to get the number down to 6.

    I would like to be done buying, but I've said I've been "done" too many times to believe that.

    Nothing
    I have far too many as it is , and I absolutely suck at getting rid of stuff
    I have 4 Les Paul's and 5 Teles , that's what I play these days
    I have fine tuned them , and they are almost done now
    It's either that , or keep accumulating guitars
    No-can-do
    Should any of my regulars fall out of fashion , I have a row of Strats I havent been using for a few years
    If we get to the end of the line there as well , I will probably start swapping speakers,.....
    No more amps , or guitars , that's the rule.....

    A new Player Series strat, still undecided as to whether SSS or SSH. Also, my epi ES339 is going to get p90s. I should then have all the bases covered for the kinds of music I play.

    Found a Les Paul copy at the pawn shop yesterday. Pretty rough shape. Be a fun cheap project. Didn’t buy it but I’m going to need to go to the grocery store today. Think I’ll go ahead and buy it

    I'd like to try a Casino. The Beatles connection is #1, followed by weight and curiosity about P90 pickups.

    .

    On my list is a pair of Jazzmasters that I'm building, one with traditional JM pickups and the second with a fabric top and humbuckers.

    As an owner of a few P90 guitars ... you guys should definitely keep chasing them.
    The one hanging out on my play wall lately:
    [​IMG]



    Here is some P90 fun perhaps, for about some this might be less than your weekly pedal buying budget.
    Harley Benton USA site for $185 plus $35 shipping...
    https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_sc_custom_p90_black.htm

    Or this one at $139 + $35 shipping ... https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_sc_450_p90_gt_classic_series.htm
    [​IMG]

    I hear if you buy one, two or three HBs that you only pay the $35 shipping once.

    I think the next guitar will be my last unless I’m replacing one.
    I will travel with Ryan Fowler of Ryan’s Guitar Experience over to The PRS plant and we will pick out the wood and parts for my Legacy family hand me down guitar
