Thread Name: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!
Subject: RE: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!
Time to form the Guitar Nostalagia Induction Circle. We all start off with one killer guitar that anyone would give that otherwise useless little finger (right hand) to own. We sell the guitar to the person on our left for a token $500 and buy the guitar on our right for $500. We get to keep this guitar for one or two years and then sell it to the left. About every ten years or so you get your original guitar back. This gives us an ongoing supply of the "one that got away" stories eg. that pre-war D-45 that got sold to make that first mortgage payment. And every ten years we get back that lost sheep. We also get to brag about buying stunning guitars for pawnshop prices: "$500 for a National Tricone!".

So if the person on my right will just send me their guitar... let the games begin!
