Open Q to Rich.....

I'm sure you've been asked this before but I'm curious anyway...

How did you come to buying/selling guitars? It's something that interests me. Not sure where to start, other than pulling together the greenbacks.

I was walking backwards one day not paying the world any attention and I fell into this bottomless pit that seems to never end!

Actually I got a bug up my ass to collect guitars, later to find out this is called GAS, and it became a necessity to become a dealer to hunt them full time. If you're not inside the game you're outside trying to look in

Sounds much like any other small business, Rich. You love to do a certain thing and then after the pixie dust settles and you find yourself back in reality...realizing that you have bills to pay, mouths to feed....suddenly attempting to do that something for a living that you find enjoyable becomes a 24 hour thing. Sounds like my kinda thing.

I'm a web designer and I hate working under the rule of 'the man''s worse in the land of the good ole' boy I'm starting a solo project with hopes to do it full time. It has nothing to do with reselling guitars, I know...but the idea is the same.

I keep hoping one day that I may find some yard sale with some old lady selling a 50's era les paul that belonged to her son before he died 10 years ago. :::sigh:::
