    to be honest, as I said I just finished the guitar and last Sunday I woke up with my wife next to me dead from an overdose on sleeping pills. i will never play guitar again... it just means nothing... I tried, I just can't.

    Seems like a fine instrument... if I didn't just get another 8-string, and already ordered my new pickups on the way; I'd research the guitar and maybe grab it. Besides that, I'm truly sorry for you loss... Maybe hold on to it for a while, and it could be a source of healing just to play and remember after the pain of a loss subsides.

    Cheers,

    Oh my god man, that's terrible. I'm so sorry to hear that. Give it time though, and hopefully you'll be able to pick it back up again some day. Welcome to SSO though, hope you stick around :wavey: Best of luck to you.

    Welcome. So sorry for your loss. That's very sad, and I feel for you. Regarding the guitar, who made it? Sims?

    When you lose someone like that, you go through several stages afterward, no matter how hard you try to "stay strong". You have to be aware of that, and you have to leave big decisions until after you have come to terms with everything.

    This guitar might end up being worth something to you later on. Trust me on that one.

    So don't judge your future emotions based on how you feel now. You're guaranteed to get it wrong.

    And go seek the guidance of a therapist/shrink. That's not a reccomendation, that's what you need to do. We aren't made to properly organize our mental processes that occur after a terrible event like that, and that causes problems. With professional help, you can straighten the pathways again, so to speak. It's not a "weakness" thing, and it's not a "naw, i can deal with this myself" thing. Humans just don't work that way.

    You can get through this, and you can find meaning again. You just need to get through the initial phase.

    Don't give up playing buddy. I bet your wife wouldn't want this. Playing could really help you get by in a time like this. Truly truly sorry for your loss mate. Beautiful guitar.

    thank you all for the kind thoughts... guitar, music creates painful memories that I just know I'll not conquer.

    as for the guitar... it was built by Jeff Head in ATL, GA and dressed and finished by Craig Pfeister of CO.

    What i'm saying is that you will.

    Just leave the guitar in a closet if you want, that's okay, just don't sell it. Save it for the future.
