Your body knows that you're about to be stuck indoors for 9 months. Unfortunately, your bank account doesn't share this seasonal "guitar sense" and will be shocked. :smile:The Nazz Are Blue said:To be honest, whenever the fall comes around (like it has lately) I get a jonesin' for some new and exciting piece of gear. The leaves falling, the smell of the air, the colour of the sky... it all just makes me crave a new guitar. I guess it doesn't help that the last few guitars I've bought were all in autumn, so as to cater to this urge. The more I feed it the more it grows...
what will I buy this year? Drool
I knew that if I mentioned a $1000 price limit someone would get curious about what I want. LOLbubkusjones said:So, what are you looking for?

I guess there really is no "best time to get the best deal". Damnit

Nothing to spectacular though. My goal is to find a very nice playable MIM strat or tele, and use a little of the left overs to get a new bridge, pups and elec, and tuners... But, alas, that is proving to be very difficult.
Really though, any model fender in the $500 - $1000 range will do... I'd really not want to spend more then $800 though, but if I likes enough I buys it.. I've had close calls but still no cigar.
I played an Eric Johson factory 2nd last week at the Long & Mcquade near my house... was going for like $1600. But I just can't justify spending that much on a guitar. I mean, it played better then any other guitar in the store, and I have the money for it.
I went back today and played it again, one clerk said he would'nt charge tax if I could pay for in full right then, but once again... I'm a cheap bastard. If they would sell it for $1000 no tax, I'd be all over it in a second. But that aint ever gonna happen.
Besides if I get something that expensive for me I'l have to get something expensive for my girlfriend, which will end up putting me about $2000 in the hole.
I'm not married to her but I will marry her somday, we've already had the marriage talk and we'd both love to get married in the future, just not while we're this young.elindso said:2 Things.
1. Are you married? If not why $1000 to the girlfriend. If she has to be compensated for your toy buying with your money you have a problem.
2. You want a top drawer guitar, but you don't want to pay for it. You won't get one ( unless you get real lucky. I hope you do:wink: ). Margins on the high end stuff are not that high. The stores don't have a lot of money to be made there.
Just my humble opinion
