    Funny thing about PSF thread... I do the opposite. I look, drool, dream for a second, then quickly go "for that much money, I could have an SC594, an Archon, and maybe a 305/Brent Mason/C24Floyd/Hollow Body/ or an SC or something else. Having that much tied up in one guitar doesn't work for my income/mindset. I'd rather have 2-3 guitars or 2 guitars and the Archon, etc. Now, if I had every guitar I ever wanted (So I'd need a couple more PRS, a Magesty 7 string and a couple more Taylors) and had plenty to spend on one more guitar, then absolutely I'd do it. But until I have ever base covered with primo stuff, I'm not quite there.

    I think it's borne of a fantasy to devote myself to just one guitar and one amp (key word is "fantasy"). In reality I have four high quality electrics and one acoustic that meet my needs and keep me from falling into a rut.

    The other side of my fantasy world is to have ALL THE PRS GUITARS!

    I do believe this is the nicest forum on the net, and I have proof to back it up. ;)

    This forum was like a breath of fresh air to me.

    People can forgive me for talking about non-PRS gear here so often, because no other forum is good for gear discussion that I have tried. You can't say anything any more about any brand or product without some childish illogical attacks levelled at you for it.

    For example, I left another larger guitar forum recently because apparently my subjective first-hand experience (and explicitly presented as such) with Gibson guitars was not acceptable reading and it descended into fighting, really nasty stuff. It was a thread for discussing the brand, I tried to discuss it, and it turned into personal attacks within like 3 replies. You just can't have constructive discussion on a board like that.

    Everyone seems friendly, informative, passionate and humble here which makes it a bit of a gem

    Thou art correct. What's worse are the YouTube Vlogs where the owner/idiots can't express their thoughts w/o cursing.
    I'm no prude, but...

    TRUTH. I don't hang around any cycling forums, but there certainly are some pricks in that sport. Not all, thankfully, also know some super nice guys that are very into it. But I can't hang around a group of them because there will inevitably be someone looking down on me because I'm a purely recreational rider. Glad this place is friendly!

    Ha! So am I. Used to be on one of the retro-grouch forums and couldn't take it anymore. I also don't hang with many other cyclists anymore. There are some really nice folks locally, and will ride with them once in a while, but it's usually some sort of adventure biking thing. Not speed, but how much fun can we have.

    People should stop taking themselves so seriously and practice a little compassion, understanding and empathy.
    It isn't difficult, and you really do feel a lot better.
