    There you go - that's one! I've seen a video of a guy in Africa or maybe Haiti who played a one-string guitar and was actually an amazing musician with it. I have to assume he became a one-string guitarist because that's all he could get, and then maybe he found his style with that and stayed with it even if he later had more options available. So that's 2!

    But I have YET to see anything expressed as a problem or a dilemma on any guitar forum that I would consider anything other than first world and more often than not, very affluent first world. And in the world of PRS collectors, that's at least doubly true...

    They’re pretty good with the right sauce.

    I look at them, can't decide, and go watch TV.

    joking that you were in disagreement with using the clean side. :)

    I love this post, but I’ve heard of “third world” guitar problems; example: not having guitars.

    I don’t think I’d be alone in suggesting that I meet that definition... ;)

    If there’s a woman whose armpits smell like maple syrup, I will share my guitars with her and put her children through college.

    And I’m not even from Canada. But Michigan has maples.

    What? You don’t even let friends play your guitars.
