    Even if we consider number of mini-toggles per guitar?!;)

    Depends on the moment I skip town. However, I have no problems with them being sold off. Better that someone plays them than that they are collecting dust out of sentimental value.

    I was thinking of donating them to local music schools, and a couple to the Old Town School of Folk music in Chicago. I'm sure they would get used by musicians!

    Oh that’s a good idea!

    I will donate my strat (still taking the PRS with me tho).

    And pedals. I will donate those with the strat.

    My Plan is to have them entombed in the Hole with me, along with my '91Toyota MR2 Turbo (where I'll be sitting inside) ,and my O Gauge model trains ...Reinforced concrete, and then have all those with knowledge of the "Hole" ... bumped off , as per the Pharaohs ......

    This topic did enter my mind recently. Short answer is my son will get my guitars. If he isn’t interested, they’ll be sold through some of the dealers I’ve worked with. So, if you guys want dibs, you need to let me know! FYI, there is a long list for the Koa Sister, and my wife has already set a high price on it! :D

    I had to go to the ER the Friday before Thanksgiving with several symptoms of having a heart attack. After multiple tests and scans, I was diagnosed with Pericardial Effusion. Just got my results today from a follow up Echocardiogram confirming the fluid buildup has gone and the underlying Pericarditis should go away over the next several weeks. Huge sigh of relief! Nothing like reading the X Ray notes saying you have an enlarged heart and a partially collapsed left lung while waiting for the more detailed CT scan! I’ve never had any heart / lung issues before, and my blood pressure has always been in the ‘good’ range my whole life. So, 2 ER visits in the last 6 months with highly unusual situations for me. I hear 2022 is when good things happen. Gotta say this decade is off to a lousy start, though YMMV! :)

    At the rate inflation is going, your prices may not be as hopeless as you think! :D

    That's pretty well thought out. Actually, let me correct my punctuation. That's pretty... , well, thought out...

    If any of you guys have not seen a Koa Sister, I highly recommend you consult with Paul. My sister would not look half as good if she was a furry Marsupial, and I have no sister.

    I mentioned the existence of this thread to Mrs Aahzz last night, and as soon as I told her the thread title she smirked and said "they're getting sold!". Given that she's an Ebay seller into decluttering, it's exactly what I expected.
