it's all about the hunt. GAS
I figured out why I do not like having expensive guitars. I have all my money tied up in my PRS and I accidentally found a guitar I have been looking for for years at a good price. Now I cant get it because I have nothing I could sell besides one of my guns.
I also figured out that a big part of this hobby for me is the hunt, not always the catch either as some guitars dont even make it a couple of days in my possession. I like trying new guitars, I dont know that I am looking for one certain sound in particular most times. I used to think I was looking for that elusive "one," I really dont think it exists for me though. Mostly because I bail on things quickly or I start nitpicking because the hunt is over and it's time for a new hunt.
I am a horrible collector because I am OCD and just cant have something I am not using lying around. Sell one to buy another kind of thing. My wife jokes that she is surprised I have not "sold her off" but she has her uses so she is safe, along with my son and my cat.
I'm really starting to think I can record with anything i have at the moment, with a POD HD 500, I can create any tone I need. Oh sure, I change pickups but most times those changes are right back to the tried and true TZ/AN combo. I am even thinking about putting that in my PRS. AS long as it does not sound bad and fits the tone I have in my head (which apparently never changes) I'm good.
So there you have, my hobby, OCD's and obsessions wrapped in a neat little bow.
