    Looks like he was trying to go for a slight Ken lawrence thing with the headstock.

    That one is a custom order in stock at Drum City GuitarLand. It's only $5200 if you're interested. :lol:

    If you want to limit your GAS seriously, take the plunge and go to the more expensive stuff - it's worth it. My US PRS pretty much killed all my impulse purchases, which for the most part were cheaper / mid-priced guitars.

    Good part: You play more, GAS less.
    Bad part: When the GAS hits, It gets VERY expensive. :lol:

    ...so, skip a couple of cheaper Kellys and get a used KE1 Friedman sig - we know you want to. :D

    But on topic, I could use a semihollow...

    ^ A lot of truth in that one. I became a gear whore when my twins were born because the amount of effort it took to get them to sleep made the risk of waking them up from playing absolutely not worth it, so I started sitting on guitar forums.
    Bad news is, once you open that door, it's hard to close. Owning higher end and customs definitely helps and I'm really stoked on what I've got (including the incoming Sully build), but as my posts here demonstrate, anytime I'm not playing, the mind begins to wander and there's always that "what is my rack missing" kind of question.
    Circling back, right now it's an explorer, a V, a Phoenix, and a Kelly/Warrior, but I think in time one would suit. If I'm going to dish out on it, I've got some ideas, but in the meantime, a black Snakebyte or some other explorer would certainly cut it. As much as an ESP Sig would be amazing, I'm lucky if I can afford a used LTD right now, so, for better or for worse, that's not happening right now.
    Fortunately, I think black and white are perfectly suitable, if not preferable, options for those body styles.
    Although a sonic blue ReVolution from Sully with PME fretboard...

    I should be gearing for a Talman strat, Iron Label fanned 8, or another HSH RG, but then this came along reach...

    And I want this Greco for some reason (namely just so I can own at least one Khaler).

    I actually have a 2 stage system for killing impulse purchases, and it's pretty simple - just ask yourself two questions:
    1) Does it bring anything to the table I can't get from my current (guitars)
    2) Is it - qualitywise - as good or better than my current gear

    ..I've bought zero guitars lately. Some building/tweaking projects, yes, but no playable guitars. Some stuff might get past stage 1, but none has passed stage 2 yet because the level of quality expected is really high. Works on amps and pedals too.

    This applies only if you want to limit your purchases (which I did because I saw no end to it and GASsing took my time away from enjoying the stuff I have), though. If you got the will and the way - knock yourself out :D

    Well, I usually try to keep an eye on guitars that are usually awesome quality for the price. It's why I keep a look out for stuff like the MiJ used Ibbys, Jacksons, etc etc. Premium guitars for nearly pennies.

    Also, speaking of what I said earlier...

    I completely forgot about this guitar for a bit, then you remind me it exists and now I got GAS for it again.

    .... all of you. :rofl:

    I need one of these just because I need it, which means I actually don't, but I do...

    Such a classy item. For me maybe TOO classy for a 7 but I'm aware that I'm basically talking nonsense.

    Because of its simplicity and charm, it sings to me... my first nice guitar was an S540 (which I still have), but somehow never had an S7 something (though I have played some). This will be the one someday...

    "ERG," coincidentally, is the sound I make when I see a guitar with that many strings.
