I think? I'm set for now.

I have 57+ electrics, acoustics, basses, and 13 Fender and Boogie tube amps.

Even with my collection, I'm still always on the hunt for something different.

I still don't have a Jazzmaster or Firebird guitar in the collection.

I might have to do something about that.

After all these years I have come full circle and realize that I need very little to get the sounds I need and use.

I do want that Lester G pedal, though...
It can take a while to come full circle. I like my amps with less buttons now. The JVM 210h I have is diverse but it takes great memory how to pull, flip, turn, and program those buttons.

Right on. I have a Super Champ X2 that has a good many features, but after fooling around with it long enough I am pulling some good tones out of it, and know where to find those tones. I really like that little amp. When those tubes get warm it will cut. It was reasonably cheap too, price wise.

I have learned that nothing is ever going to be perfect, but I know when I have found a tone that I like, and can live with it. Once I reached that conclusion it made everything much more simple, not to mention much less expensive. I should have always used this approach. I enjoy it more now than ever.

Default Another amp

I've got a Fender DRRI which has amazing clean tones and chime but with a speaker upgrade it's now pushing 50 lbs. Lugging it to church and back twice a week is getting old. Plus I have to keep stage volume low, so I'm lusting for the Princeton Reverb reissue with a 12" C Rex speaker. A perfect 34 lbs. I wish I would have known they existed when I bought the Deluxe Reverb.

It would be nice if you could have an amp you could just leave at church with another for a practice amp.

Here's the magic: Buy a second amp and find a safe place at church to store one of them between uses.

I'm not 'looking' to buy anything in the foreseeable future - I really need to start making more use of what I already have.

However, that does not preclude some tasty item finding me

I'm awaiting your next New Electric Gear thread, Todd. Something will pop up. .

Is it a production color for Strats or is it a LTD? Good luck with it!

I had bookmarked a Les Paul Classic Traditional that was on Reverb that had a lower than usual price because of a gouge on one of the sides. That wouldn't matter to me because of the price. I even planned on putting a band aid on it, if purchased. The reason I didn't jump on it right away is, I don't really play the five electrics I already have to justify buying another. What was tempting is the fact that I've never had a burst style Les Paul. I do have a Les Paul Special and a '67 ES335 and that pretty much covers my Gibson needs.

Also, I occasionally get the itch to have a Gretsch electric guitar. As mentioned above, I don't play my electrics as much as I used to, but the G5420T in Aspen Green is oh so tempting. They are $800 but Musician's Friend is currently offering a black or white G5420T with gold trim for $700.

Don't need... but want ... ♫

Same here, as far as musical instrument related stuff goes; now, it's vintage Stickley and 1890s to early 1900s slag glass table lamps!

If I were looking for another electric guitar (I have none, anymore) it would be a 1978 Gibson RD Artist in ebony, just like the two others I used to have in the early '80s.
