Re: Sold my VDY
I don't want to upset anyone or claim to know any better than any of you BUT I can safely say, without a doubt, that I wouldn't sell any of my guitars because I'm cash strapped. Never. Sure, I've had times... many times where I've been broke as all hell and in need of emergency money but my Jem and Les Paul, or the other guitars, never even factored into the equation of getting some money. It'd be like selling one of my own children. I know in the end that it's a piece of wood with plastic and metal attached..... but ..... I don't know really...... I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I'd rather sell my car.
Like I said though, each to their own. I just know that if I ever sold my guitars I'd regret it, so why do it?
EDIT: although in saying all of that, I know there's a fair few people in here who own a ridiculous amount of Jem's and the like.... and that's the big difference between us I suppose. I've only ever had 2 really top notch guitars and the rest are pretty average. If I had 15 jems or something like that, then I can understand culling the herd a bit. So yeah..... I'm coming from a different angle there.
