Are your guitars worth it?
Are your guitars worth it to you? Does the quality of a guitar justify the price? Do your playing needs justify owning a 2000$+ guitar?
I've been asking myself these questions a lot lately, so I want to hear your input on my situation, and I want to hear about your views and situations as well.
Since I was 13, most of the money I have ever made, whether it was from a job, or a gift, I have spent it one guitars. Now that I'm legally an adult, and commute both the school and work 6 days a week, I feel as if I have matured, and as a product of that, I have been much more concerned with my wallet.
I own 10 guitars, some are beaters, some are classy. Some I've paid 150$ for, others I've paid 2000$ + for. I've been saying to myself that I'm going to sell a bunch of them because really there is no purpose in holding onto that many guitars. I'm not a professional musician. But I find it so hard to let go to anyone of them.
What makes matters even more confusing, the two guitars I reach for the most are my RG7621, and my RG570, and I bought them both for less than 300$ each. Why justify spending the 1000$ on the Musicman I did a few weeks ago when I can get a MIJ Ibanez for only a few hundred?
What do you think I should do, thin the herd? Or keep all of them, because there is no immediate need for money? Have any of you dealt with similar problems?
