1 PawnShopYamaha 1 year ago Some background: I've always played inexpensive guitars. Some have been real treasures, but mostly, just affordable, pawn-shop purchases that allowed me to keep playing no matter what my financial status was at the time.A few months ago, I bought a mahogany Martin D-15 for less money than should be legal and it really opened up a new world for me. I thought, "So THIS is what owning a good guitar is like. THEN, I played a friend's Country Gentleman a few months ago. It was an Epic Revelation.It took some serious soul searching, but I came to the realization that I owned guns that I had not shot for years. And that I played my guitars every day.So I laid out all my firearms on the bed, chose a few that I hadn't shot in the last 2 years and took them to the local gun shop to sell. It was enough to buy a minty, Aspen Green 5420T, which will be here by Friday.I still have plenty of guns to pass on to my daughter, but now I can leave a couple of decent guitars as a legacy, too.I'll have to make do with a little Line 6 amp until I can get my hands on a decent used tube amp. But at least, I'll be able to learn my way around a Gretsch. MY Gretsch. Finally.
