    And I should be 500... How does the Yamaha sound?

    I'm 54 don't expect anything for a birthday cause if I can
    't ... afford it... I'llbuy it. If I can't afford it, likely too much for anyone to spring for me...

    I used to buy guitars on Ebay, even bought them for myself for birthday and anniversary presents (for 20 years, my wife and I have bought our own birthday and anniversary presents and said "here's what you got me").

    Now, Ebay prices are so high, I mostly just sell guitars there. I have 3 on now. One I bought at Guitar Center that has a few hours to go and is currently up to about 2.5 times what I paid at GC, used. Another I bought at a pawn shop is a little under double what I paid. The third has no bids yet, but I'm pretty confident it will sell for more than I paid. If I could find deals like that ever day, I'd quit my job and just sell guitars on ebay.

    Hey Bren, I like playing even though I SUCK!

    I'm not in the selling mode, never buy on the investment mode (probably safer than Wall Street though).

    Anyway, what are your amps? Do any modeling or stomp boxes??

    I'm still very noob. I could actually play something decades ago.

    I still get very surprised, when I actually hit a few chords correctly, at the quality of the "boom" that comes out of it.

    Some,of the,greatest rock (and blues) came from 6 chords and good timing...

    One of my heroes , Townshend played one note solo's with great timing...

    Turn it up!


    Don't think one sound , think leading d-day!

    I just play in the house, now, so I like modelling (Vox) and plain old solid state, like my Marshall Valvestate 2x12. I have rack gear and stomp boxes too, but I don't play enough to fool with them anymore.

    I'm not making much money off the guitars - they were originally bought for $65 (Squier Telecaster with Seymour Duncan pickup) and $225 (Fender Classic 70's strat) a year or two back, so doubling that still isn't a major haul. Before I bought a house, I did a lot more buying, selling and trading and with mostly U.S. made guitars and a few vintage. Now I just occasionally buy something I find cheap, like the Squier that obviously had a higher end bridge pickup.

    I haven't been able to play much since June, when I messed up my left ring finger in a crossbow accident.

    The last high end guitars I sold on Ebay were my 1962 Martin F55, Mosrite Johnny Ramone ser. # 19, a confederate flag Les Paul that may have been used on Bllly Idol's 1984 tour (sold to the guitarist for Iced Earth) and my Fender James Burton paisley tele.
