No More Guitars ? - What's next ?

I have a big problem, I do not know what get guitar I will get next. There is nothing new that interest me. Any suggestions? I am searching for an Ibanez RGPR2 & 3 but no plans after that!
I'm looking for new guitars of interest. Used ones are usually not mint (I hate that) plus the inflated prices.
What is on your "wish list"?

Wait a minute. Did I understand everything correct???
You don't know what guitar would you buy next???
Is there any particular reason for buying a new guitar???

If not...
Why do you need to buy a guitar??? If you're a collector I can somehow understand you. But if you're a player, then why the hell can't you just be happy with the guitars you own now???

Please, correct me if understood something wrong!!!

Why not ask this question after you find those two guitars? *It sounds like you have your work cut out for you right now.......

By the time you find the RGPR2 & 3 maybe Ibanez will be offering something you'll be interested in.

Not wanting anything else? Not interested in anything else????? *UHHHH that doesn't make sense to me. *I can't grasp that concept. :biggrin:

Buy a Squire Standard Stratocaster and go nuts making it your project guitar. *Replace the inlays, the neck, the pickups, the bridge, the tuners, the pickguard, refinish, etc. *Just make it your own guitar. *That way you end up with what you want for less money than ordering a "custom" guitar and getting it 90% perfect.

Go with the Squire idea, but start with a better base. *Maybe a Warmoth guitar... and pimp that up.

Ooooo...do I sense a negative attitude towards my question? I must be more of a collector than a player because I feel that you can never have enough guitars.
I have tried "project" guitars (seven of them) but they were only comsetic and nothing inoviative. I did make a copy of the 4 neck (x formation) of a guitar used by michael angelo (Nitro). Not very practical!
No offense to anyone but if I can afford more...why not?

I really was just interested in what was on your "wish list" ?

Geez, you would have thought that I had stated that Vai was joining Van Halen!

Al, I think that what the guys are saying is that your situation is sort of the opposite to everyone elses.

The fact that you can afford more is fine, it just doesnt seem to make sense to want more but at the same time not know what you want.

If there is nothing that appeals to you...then dont buy another one at this point

Its like you want to produce your GAS without a reason. Just enjoy the ones you have, and when you find one you really want....go for it !

Me? There are many I would like... A Parker, a JPM , a 7 string...etc..:biggrin: *But I've let myself get too carried away recently, so I gotta wait...
Ill just enjoy my new adquisitions for the time being...

Julio


p.s- Got a bit carried away with the emoticons.....

Al, like me, you seem to have an insatiable apetite for guitars. This is a good thing, especially when you can afford them. I'm always ready to buy a keeper, sometimes I get confused as to what I'm going after next. Sometimes pickins are good and too many choices get me flustered cause I want them all :biggrin: When pickins are slim, well, I just buy what's available :biggrin:

I was hoping that Rich would give me some kind of support. I understand what you guys are saying but I come from the 80's when there were too many guitars and new improvements but I was lucky to be able to get one guitar a year back then! Even then, I would plan and save for a new guitar, buy it and when I was leaving the store I would spot my next guitar.
Getting a new guitar is such a rush and a high that will last for a few weeks. Eventually, I will usually have my eye on the next one (kinda like women...well for some guys). Should I seek help for this condition....well, maybe. Did I ever feel that I should have not bought a guitar just for the sake of getting a guitar...no. Will I ever stop...never!
Like Rich stated, I am going through a period when "pickins are slim".

BOTTOM LINE:
What new guitars are you guys interested in ?

A cure hasn't been invented but there are steps to reduce the GAS. Stay out of music stores, stay away from Jemsite, and never come to my site!! :biggrin: To answer your question about *new* guitars, only DNA's have my interest right now. Just kept another. The new Ultra Jem has my curiosity, but as it's still on the drawing board I guess I'll just stick with DNA's (and many *older* models) for now :biggrin:

The proposed full blown limited edition *expensive* Jem with ALL the bells and whistles. SSV was telling our Texas comrades about. It's on one of the threads around here, I'm old, I can't remember which

After getting my first Ibanez guitar in a month (possibly an RG2020X or JEM 77 or 7V), I'll save up for either a Fender SRV or a semi-accoustic (a cherry ES335 most likely).

I tend to enjoy so much dreaming about what my next guitar should/would be!
