    Name it!
    Maybe a certain guitar or amp. Maybe a limited finish or wood combo. Something not readily available?

    The past couple weeks I’ve been regretting not snapping up a CE 24 semi hollow Reclaimed Ltd. At the time, I was more drawn to the Vela since it was a newer, less of the PRS norm. I eventually got one of the Vela’s, which was great. Sadly sold it to pay for some studio time and other band related gear I needed.
    Anyway, back to the Reclaimed CE 24...
    I’ve really had a hankering for an all natural, satin PRS with a trem lately. I’ve been playing my NF3 at home, which I love, but have wanted something a little different but similar with a humbucker in the bridge. I now feel stupid for not buying a PRS staple model with limited, unobtainium options. How could I be so dumb?

    Whatcha got? Or, I guess, whatcha not got that ya shoulda got?

    I wish I would’ve gotten one of those limited semi-hollow SEs in silver sparkle with the ebony board, Phase II tuners, and Bigsby.

    I kept/keep waiting thinking it was eventually gonna be a $350 guitar... what can I say? Sometimes I’m wrong.

    While looking for a picture to post, I came across a used one at GC ($699!) and.... this uh... what can only be described as a Cinemax soft core porno:



    Oh, what to do?

    I haven't missed anything. I am trying not to visit my favourite guitar shop though. They have some appealing guitars at present.
    If I do though I will have to trade something in.

    I’m regularly on the lookout for one, and perpetually broke whenever they pop up. I’ll hit you with a link next time.

    There is only 1 regret for me. I usually am not a sucker for the look of a top but this one was so extraordinary. It was an ad for a used SC on Craigslist. The top was a black burst and the center looked like a sunset. Like the Arizona flag kind of sunset. I was saving up for some non gear related thing at the time, don't even remember what it was, but I think I'd rather have that SC than whatever I did with the money.

    That Matchelss I played in a shop in downtown Santa Cruz in the late 90s. I have no idea what model it was, and others I have played since never sounded as nice as I remember that one.

    I did get one of those, or more correctly the Mrs bought one I left behind in the store. Not as pretty as this one though. I have thought of trading mine for a JA15.

    But really, I should have been smart enough to take Mrs with me when I visited the JA15. She probably would have known better.

    That Archtop that I waited overnight on a couple of weeks ago. It was priced stupid low at $2,495. Excellent condition, to boot. Was watching a SH 594 (DC). Seller lowered his price to $2,300. I got the email ten minutes after he changed his price, and it was gone. Listed as "unplayed" as well.
