Crap!!!! YOu snooze you loose!!!

My wife and I were eating ice cream the other night and walking around. We went by a pawn shop and they had a Jem WVH in the window but I could not see the price. After my last purchase, I agreed with my wife that I had enough guitars and that I would not buy another one unless I sold one. I had already gotten rid of all the ones I could part with so basically I was agreeing to not buy any more.

Well, I went by just to see the price a couple of days later. $500 for a mint condition vwh! I called my wife to ask if it was OK if I altered the agreement given the great deal, and she said she would think about it (After all, my wife is more important). By the time I made it back by some other luckybastard had bought the thing.

Oh well, guess it was not ment to be.

The moral of the story? Never, ever agree to never by any more guitars. My wife knows this is something I could never agree to anyway.

hey dude, that was me who bought that guitar.....he actually went lower to $400 for me........i'm just kidding!

that sux dude!!!! ahhhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!

i found my new mint jem 7vwh this week. it was mint with the case, the guy never played it. although not as low as what you found it was too damn good to pass up. i too made the same arrangement with myself and my girlfriend of 3 years..... who wants a ring. i told her what i was going to do and she wasn't that happy. after seeing how insane i was and that i just had to have it......she knew there is no way i can pass this stuff up. when GAS strikes, what are you gonna do. i did wind up selling a guitar that i never thought i would..... cuz it gets expensive. i sux but i would rather have a 7vwh.

she works at the bank i bank at..... i called her and said.... i need you to cut me a money order for $$$. she said what for? i said....this cool steve vai guitar. silence on the phone. hehehehehe.

There would have been no hesitation from me. It is clear between me and my wife that she is not to keep me from my true passions, and the same goes for her.
