Help....BFP vs Universe

Need some help here folks......funds are pretty tight (and are likely to be for a while), and I have a BFP which is really nice.

However, I keep having the Universe (latest model) coming round to haunt me and I really want one. This would mean getting rid of the BFP......but I love the BFP aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrggggghhh - WHAT DO I DO?

Anyone else been here - please help!

Thanks guys.

Have you got another 6-string you really like? In that case, get the UV!

I am with metalmarty. If you have another 6-string that you really like, go for the UV. You'll have more variety to play with and two really diferent guitars.

I'm in a kinda similar situation. I know a guy who is selling an FP for a real good price, and i always loved those damned FP's.... But i already have a VWH, PMC and a Strat! So i'll get some more money and get the latest UV instead (in the loooong future, though ).

Bad idea to sell a BFP now.

Keep the BFP. The latest UV is still available new, the BFP is not.

Kennydoe - That picture didn't help me at all..........just made me more confused!

Thanks folks - took a long look at my BFP last night and I can't bear to get rid of it. I need to get some serious listing onto Ebay......not the BFP though.

Cheers!

sell your possetions that don't have 6 or 7 strings on them, hehehehe
for example you car, your stereo, TV anything, but don't get rid of your guitar,

they are to much apart of us and never outdate.

If it helps, here's a little stat for you:
On my gigs, my BFP outplays the UV by about 10:1 (unless I break a BFP string at the beginning of a set, LOL)

At home the UV gets a bit more playtime - I tend to practice on the UV more.
