OCD for PRS

We have to be able to to afford these? hahaha
I know I probably shouldn't tell him this, and get his hopes up... but there is also Option #4 as well.Well, that was the first option that @alex1fly offered: Save for a long time. "Long time" is subjective, and if you bust your tail enough you can shorten the time frame in a few different ways.
The second option is not what I would ever suggest. But some people exercise it, and live with the risk. Perhaps because they have Option 3 at the ready:
The third option I assume alludes to having well-to-do parents who don't mind splurging, getting an inheritance (perhaps from aforementioned well-to-do parents), or acquiring a sugar-daddy/mommy.
I ALMOST bought one of those exactly like that color and all. Literally decided to buy it, but before I got back to that store, found a Kramer Pacer at another store and bought it instead.At 19 years old I, also, had an Ibanez Sabre (the yellow one on the left). I still have it.

"Perspective".I'm 19, I'm broke because uni :/
But my sister works part time maximum manager shifts at this bar that she's been at for a while and she's got like 12 grand in the savings (pure personal savings, no car payments, other things to pay off etc. all of that just for whatever she wants to do with it . The cores are like 4 grand, and a lot of you have multiple. some people get private stocks. Some of you EVEN get custom made private stocks which is awesome. As well as the minimum 2 beautiful cores that I aspire to have (a tobacco McCarty Singlecut and a light charcoal Tremonti) I'm recently super into some other big expensive stuff. I'm a music person, I'm studying music stuff, and my career path is leading me into a life in the music industry and all that. Half the time buying all this equipment seems damn near impossible, and then other days when I see other things a 12 grand customised private stock doesn't seem like as much wishful thinking as possibility. I'm kinda just curious how u guys justify every music purchase you make when it's so goddamn expensive... or is it? I CAN'T TELL I HAVE NO PERSPECTIVE ON THE VALUE OF MONEY
Edit: I'm not looking at buying hundreds of guitars now at my age. I have my 2 SE Tremontis (they are different) one that my dad got me for my 18th bday, and one that I bought myself. But my perspective on money is wayyyy off I think. Just from what I see around me, I'm curious how people who have been doing this for longer than me lmaooooo and how it's turned out for you guys.
I couldn't afford more than just ONE good guitar until I started making a decent living in my 40's.I couldn‘t afford good guitars until i was in my late forties. It’s called life!
