Hardly touched my guitar since college (35+ years ago). Gave it away last year. So anyway for Christmas the kids bought me a Playstation3, Guitar Hero III, and a plastic Les Paul. Now I'm in a band and I have my own roadies.... you knew this thread had to here sooner or later.

As a former owner of a Silvertone/Danelectro, an American-made Epiphone, a class-A no-name amp, a 15w Gibson amp, and a Sound City 50w head, all from the 1960s, I reiterate: Never sell a guitar...

Current stable includes two Strats, a SG, an Ibanez Artcore w/Bigsby, a no-name bass, a Takamine acoustic-electric, and a Conrad acoustic. Amps: Ross 10w practice amp, Crate 10w bass amp, and a Carvin 60w tube combo amp. Miscellaneous gear includes two synthesizer modules, a midi keyboard, a Tascam 4-track, Emu 0404 audio/midi interface, a couple of Shure SM58s, and a Roland 400w PA system.

G.A.S. - Gear Acquisition Syndrome...

Have Funds, Will Retire

Now that is *exactly* what this forum is for! You post that you are thinking of selling something that your wife gave you years ago, and we all tell you:

What? Are you crazy? You'll hurt her feelings!!!!!

And then you say, "OK, thanks, bad idea I guess".

Remember, we are here to help (and abuse, as is appropriate, or not)

All this guitar talk reminded me of one I bought around 1968 or 69. A Hannabach, made in Germany by some small maker. It has a handwritten date on the label "anno 1968/5"

Never did get around to learn to play it. Mostly spent time in storage at various places, or in dark closets, so I finally looked at it.
Bummer, the neck stem is loose. So I'll see if I can find a repair place to get it re-glued. I can fix most hings, wood instrument is not one of those.

Geez, now that I'm retired, I think it is time to learn to plink play.

There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.
