GUEST,Musket BS: NFC credit cards - metal wallets ??? (43) RE: BS: NFC credit cards - metal wallets ??? 18 Aug 15

Yeah that's the issue. I don't like leaving them in cases out of the way, I want to play them so they are all on stands in the study. Snag is, I can't get to a book case now and a cupboard under it has things I need to get at.

Been looking at a two tier multi stand. Footprint less than two guitars but holds six. Two of them might just do it and for now, hold the banjo, tenor mandolin etc too.

Cost is less of an issue than many years ago, not just because of my circumstances but because you get so much guitar for so little if you look around. I delight in finding new guitars less than a grand that are up there with the four granders in tone and playability. A friend just starting out playing asked my advice and I went with him to purchase. An Epiphone at £120 new? I was impressed with this one at any level. (Ditto Yamaha, Alvarez, Sigma, Lag, tanglewood......)

The Reiner and Rainsong are the only ones I have right now worth four figure sums although of course, it's only a matter of time till either that Collings I keep borrowing or a HD28 of some description comes my way. Resistance is futile. A bit like me buying a Washburn equivalent of the Gibson ES335 for my electrics collection last month. Yeah it's good for £250 but as I am playing it often, how long before a real "Lucille" or the Gretsch White Falcon takes up residence in Chez Musket?
