Thread Name: New guitar
Subject: RE: BS: New guitar
No, not on the second guitar. After 7 or 8 maybe, and then only because acquiring another quitar requires some subterfuge. Of course I didn't raise much of a ruckus when she bought yet another instrument for her collection just last week. Saving the point for my next attack of GAS (Gear Acquisiton Syndrome).

I don't know your circumstances, but I honestly think that anyone who plays deserves to have a good instrument. Fortunately today it doesn't have to be a top end custom made guitar to have a really positive impact on your playing, both through the instrument itself and your attitude toward playing. There are some fine lower cost instruments out there, Martin included.

If buying another dread is part of the issue, may I suggest you consider an OM or even a 000? Something different might be just the thing. I have a 000-15SE I love. Completely different sound from my dread and a delight to play.
