God, I'm stupid

Someone finally decided to buy my Strat, at the worst possible moment. I've got this big exam coming up at the end of this year, so that means if I sell my guitar I can't use the money to buy a new one. My dad told me this after I made an appointment with the buyer. I was secretly hoping that the deal fell through, but the buyer was serious about buying my strat. Being the good, foolish guy I am, I sold it.

So I'm stuck here with my cheap Yamaha classical. I've been meaning to work on my fingerstyle as of late, and the absence of an electric might help me concentrate on my studies.

God, I'm stupid.

Re: God, I'm stupid

No,no I think you did well. I have a really important exam this year as well, and find it hard to concentrate due to several reasons. Coming of spring and guitar are the most important ones. Though I wouldn't dream of selling my beatiful jem, I wouldn't feel sorry about selling a strat at this point of my life. (Presuming that you have sold a standart strat)

Think of it this way. If you do well, you can ask your father to get you a Deluxe Strat. That's what I intend to do. But I intend to ask for an iMac G5 20" as well

Btw, if you can make some recommendations on concentrating on my studies I would be reall happy

That's easy. Just sit down and concentrate on your studies. There's no other way.

Re: God, I'm stupid

Yes, an Ibanez first, then maybe something else.

I've got it all worked out: if I do well in my exams, I'll ask my dad for something with an LP style config, and use the money I got from the Strat to get a 5xx. It's high time I started hitting the books.

P.S: I sold a Classic 50's Strat. If any of you own one of these babies and love her to death, I advise you not to sell her (providing that you don't seriously need the money).

How much does it cost to get a Classic 50's Strat anyway? It looks like a collector's item from the way you described it.

Sorry for me being so stupid about Fender. My world revolves around Ibanez, ESP and Carvin.

You're not being stupid. It's just that you take more interest in other brands, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Re: God, I'm stupid

How about an nice old second-hand RT650? Not much difference with a Strat (theoretically)

When I was doing my college entrance tests I gave my guitar to a friend and said: "look, it's yours for a fortnight if you put new strings on her". The deal worked out well for both. He enjoyed the guitar for a while and I got new strings and a very good result in the exams. Plus, when I got the guitar back I came up with lots of cool ideas, as it happens when you haven't played for a while \m/

Sometimes the best thing that can happen to your musical skills is not to have a guitar around...
