For most of us, the chase for "the one" is illusory, a carrot and stick kind of thing, where, sometimes, you get to chew the carrot a little while, only to find it once again ahead of you.

In my case I have some specialty guitars, and 2 of them are not likely ever to be sold, because I know I won't find another that I like better. But on the regular 6 strings, yes, I have (daily?) favorites and, yes, I can envision parting with one or more of them under the right circumstances - but I am not really expecting to. Nor am I expecting to find one that blows my socks off forever. Not sure such a thing exists for me. Not that I wouldn't like it if it did.

I make changes very slowly and seem to have bought more than I have sold. It's more fun that way; with nothing to look forward to as a replacement, there is nothing fun or exciting in selling a good guitar. But there sure is when I acquire one.

But finding "The One".... I don't think so.
