1 50 Shades of Orange 2 weeks ago Have you ever had really painful GAS, the long, enduring kind, only to finally hold and play what you coveted and have the GAS pass (pun fully intended)?For quite some time, I’d fancied an R6, likely used if I were to ever pull the trigger. Well, I tried one last weekend, about which one of the store employees even said “that there is the best Goldtop in the store.” For the price, I was pretty underwhelmed. My 1990 Special to me plays as nicely, and I didn’t feel like I was playing thousands of dollars more guitar than my 2013 Traditional. I even played a used R4. Tone debate between wraptail and ABR aside, I didn’t like the feel of the wraptail.I feel relieved, yet somehow empty, wondering “now what?”It’s funny how even a long-held bad idea can be hard to let go of, even when it’s abundantly clear to one’s rational side.
