1 Twangmeisternyc 5 years ago Billy seems to have exemplified the minimalist occasional behavior that exists within us from time to time, or should we become survivalists, I did it for a long time once already, too.I'm not taking shots or sides, at Billy or the idea, but there is a great appreciation for knowing a single guitar and/or with amp really, really well. It becomes part of you so to say. I did it from 1975 to 1992.I might be regressing, I might otherwise like to renew that connection to a single guitar/partner combo.I watched a YouTube the other night. Sid McGinnis from The Letterman Show. Gear Expose...whatever.12 Electric guitars, 35 Amps...all great, all mutts, rigged up his way to play the Show.We all know folks that have considerably more inventory. Is it a hobby, or a need, or a retirement plan? Or a business?Having a guitar that fits your hand and style great sitting or standing, maybe having an amp that sings great along with it...other than duplicating that exact same thing in the event of mishap...what else do you expect from your playing and those who appreciate it?
