    @Spaced Out Ace I disagree, the best options is to get her something at the same time... so she doesn't feel neglected...
    @MoonJelly good wives are keepers...

    I never insinuated at all to just buy stuff and not get the wife anything.

    Haha! That worked for a while when I was upgrading wheels and tires on a few vehicles, but not so much with guitars.

    I've got two that I know I'm going to take a nasty loss on ( taking them to the pawn shop tomorrow... ugh) but I told her that I wouldn't bring another new axe into the house until I got rid of at least one.

    Yep. I think that my girl understands that there will always be something that I want, even though she doesn't lust after such things... not audibly anyway lol.

    Yes, I know, but IMO that lying/hiding stuff is not the answer... it will come back some how, like karma if you believe in it...

    I do. The first part was a joke, the second half was a more serious suggestion. It's difficult to tell via text.

    I've been thinking about making up one of those cards like you get at coffee shops and they put a stamp on it every time you buy a coffee; I'd give myself one stamp every time I say "I don't think I need any more guitars" and then when I get to 10 stamps I'd buy a guitar.

    Digging the acoustic genre nowadays, just bought a Selmer/Maccaferri clone guitar and now I could upgrade my nylon string:

    I do keep fancying a gypsy style acoustic, don't really know my way around the brands in that market.

    That would be dangerous in my hands. I would need to make it closer to 1000 stamps, otherwise I would be buying a new guitar every other day.

    Yah, it's very hard to tell, specially when someone is not English native (me at least)... thanks for the share

    Dunno where else to post but I have to babble for a minute somewhere lol. Got the snow white King V secured! I won't see it till next week but I'm really excited. Been a LONG time since I've played a pointy sexy sixer. She's got a natural finish, one-piece maple neck/ thru, ebony board, compound radius, D '59/ JB, blah blah, everything I want. Curious to see if I'm gonna wanna replace pups but hopefully these will sound okay for a while. I'll def install some locking pegs, replace the double speeders for chrome domes to match the rest of the hardware, and replace the creme switch tip with white. Also gotta find something flashy for her to wear as well as a HSC. Anyway... I can't hardly wait for this one. Hopefully an exuberant NGD coming soon.

    Oh, and this is the last one for sure...

    I wanted to get a Boss HM-2 or clone like the Walrus Red, but my pedals aren't selling and I've gotten 0.0 interest, so doesn't look like that's in the cards.

    These seem nicer than normal g400s but I'm not sure about that middle pickup

    Has a Floyd with D Tuna, looks like my "single cut"-ish Drop A/B standard itch could be thoroughly scratched.
