    I'm not sure what happened here guys. I bought this guitar 2 years or so ago and loved it. Been playing it almost exclusively ever since. And lately, every time I pick it up, I just find myself putting it back down and reaching for my Les Paul. You ever have that happen to you before?

    I hate to get rid of it from an emotional standpoint because it's a beauty and it's so unique but I'm so pragmatic when it comes to guitars... If it doesn't get played, it goes. Thinking about maybe one of those new G&L Doheney's or maybe a 408 or a used Brent Mason.... Decisions decisions...

    They are such different guitars that I wouldn’t be too quick to move the SAS. You could easily just be in the mind set for that Les Paul sound.
    I frequently ignore some guitars for a while and pick them up when the sound in my head shifts. It’s really nice to have something different enough that you really notice.
    Plus SAS and NF are a great combination.

    OK, this big spender will go $603. Top that if you dare, Mr. I-am- not-worthy-of blue guitars! The gauntlet has been thrown down!

    I bowed out because I convinced myself it was blue, and someone else should end up with it! :D That's what he would get for bidding blind!

    I’ve had this happen where guitars I previously loved sound meh to me. I find it’s usually related to my mood/stress or a cold (ears not hearing things as vividly). Sometimes I just need to hear a different sound (guitar or amp) for a few weeks. Or it’s time to change strings! :)

    I’d definitely keep it, unless you have serious gas for something else.

    $605.

    And I never said I was unworthy of blue guitars. I have just enough worth to paint them.

    Need I remind you of a certain hollowbody spruce?! If you were in love with it at some point...give it time. FYI, I have a Brent Mason you can strum around on! :)

    All I can say is "What goes around, comes around". I have found that my tone tastes seem to rotate / change every so often, which means playing a different guitar. For a while I was really into all things single coil. Now I am back to narrowfields. Who knows what is next, but my guess is humbuckers. Some of what happens depends on what kind of music I am leaning, and / or playing ATM (at least I think so??)

    If you don't have to sell, I think I would keep the guitar (especially since they aren't making these any more). You may fall back in love with the guitar down the road.
