I’m a Taoist too, Les.
Except the difference between us is that you actually know what a Taoist is!
On the other hand, now I’m determined to find out. I’ll do some reading.
Edit - just got a book on the philosophy and history of Taoism. So thanks for giving me something interesting to read about!
The birth year guitar is a cool idea. Hmm.... what are some '79 guitars I should be on the lookout for?
My wife recently gave me a hard limit of 12 guitars total. And they all need to be out (no hiding 5 additional ones in the closet). And that number includes her acoustic and bass. So, ten for me.
I consider that generous, as I didn’t intend to own ten, plus I use her two anyway. But since I have the pre-approval...
I do plan on having a Floyd - either modifying my CE-22, or saving for the Custom 24 version if I find the right one. And at some point at Hollowbody would round things off nicely. But I just did a few moves/trades, so I’ll stay low key for a bit.
My first guitar was a ‘79 Les Paul Deluxe, but it won’t be for sale for a very long time (perhaps 3 generations).
The last PRS acquisition was the RL Vela, which was a pretty smart buy. It scratched itches unknown and earned its own spot in the herd. What’s next? Not sure...gotta develop a new itch.

I'm in a decent place with the guitars I own with no real gas attacks at the moment other than wanting a bass and maybe a hollowbody with a bigsby. Last week I decided to scratch the bass off the list so I dug into the closet and traded in my old Sigma 12 string and Peavey Backstage for a Yamaha Bass and a Fender Rumble 40.
I'm considering either getting a fret level on my Mexican Strat, or selling the Mexican Strat and getting a new Strat. (was considering the Ed O'Brien Strat cause the sustainer pickup is interesting to me and would fit in well with my band.) But as far as PRS's, I want a HBII really bad. I think I'm gonna hold off on that for 8+ years till my kids are in and out of college though. Otherwise it might cause a divorce lol.
Much harder to accomplish for those of us who did most of our posting before the ‘like’ system was enabled. Still, a fun goal.
I have considered going back and liking a bunch of old threads to try and balance things a little. It’s less fun with so many photos missing.
You can have some of mine.
I don' need no steenkin plan!!
To focus on playing more and gear less for the foreseeable future. After years of gear-go-round I paired down to just two PRSi (as blasphemous as it may sound) and I’m enjoying the simplicity. Admittedly still tempted by a PG so it’s good they’re scarce.
I guess you could say I'm good , for now,...Plenty of guitars/basses...all pickup combinations covered...HB, SC, P-90, etc...Just filled my amp shelves...and plenty of pedals...Crap.
Until something comes by that deserves a nice BIG trade. the local Cockeysville MGR has a really pretty PS Cu 24...but the dark blue almost hides the awesome quilt.
If it were a little lighter in color, I might be stacking guitars in the trunk for a deal.
Plus, for the last 10 years or so, I promise myself I'd save for the Experience, and actually buy something there. Last year it was a P90 in the neck monster. (at Brian's, I think)
So I might just get to the experience with a couple bucks this year????
****EDIT: I just saw the new white SE SC (Nicely modded) next to the also well-modded "PRS One"...THAT's what I NEED...a really nice "One"!!!!!!!!!!
de Blanc Custom Finishing could sort that for you!
Nevermind, I just saw the new SE's...
Yeah, us new guys have it easy.
We have that... new guy smell!
Downy fresh. But, we’re also still not the “cool kids” so there is that.
That’s apparently important to some women.
