    I have some nice, expensive guitars. What’s depressing isn’t what they cost; it’s that by any objective standard, my playing doesn’t reveal a quintillionth of what they can do in the hands of a really good player. So I neither need nor deserve them.

    “Les, it ain’t about need, and it ain’t about deserve.”

    “What’s it about, then?”

    “My guess is one really knows.”

    “So basically, we’re talking about the futility of trying to figure out the human condition?”

    “Well, as Kierkegaard said, ‘Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.’”

    “What’s Kierkegaard have to do with guitar shopping?”

    “How should I know?”

    “I’ll bet this is the only guitar forum on earth where one can find a discussion of the relationship of Kierkegaard to guitar ownership, though.”

    That is a fine looking guitar. The deluxe versions have the most impressive knobs I've ever seen on a guitar. The rest isn't bad either.

    Great upload thanks! Lovely to see a sharp scraper being used so effectively.

    Thought this might make you chuckle

    Heheheh!

    I was hoping we’d get to see the Greeks’ new goalie, Diabetes, but evidently he wasn’t ready. It’s kind of a shame about Herpes’ injury.

    Probably my custom replica 58 Flying V. Builder had access to a real one and NAILED it.

    Does not say *G* on the headstock.
    but otherwise dead nuts. Amazing guitar.

    This one here - cost was $3630, and ended up hating the pickups and doing a rewire/replace with McCarty pickups.

    I hope I never pay that much for a guitar again.

    I guess this guy. It's not the guitar that I spent the most on, but it is probably one with the most value in my stable.

    I can arrange for you to touch the prototype... but now that you brought it up, I want to be touched by a tortilla to make that happen.

    I’m gonna sell that.

    What else? My PRS Private Stock of course!

    Although my Gibson CS Historic Byrdland comes close.

    My most valuable axes were vintage when I bought them decades ago.
    Probably my most pricey modern guitar is this McNaught. But my Johnny A set me back around three grand.
